Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
"When I discovered Rackham the thing that struck me most about him was his drawings of trees and the trees had wonderful faces, and it threw me immediately back to when I was young because I was always climbing trees, always up a tree, always in a relationship with a tree. And it suddenly reminded me how I felt about trees. And what I felt is that they had personality and soul. That led me straight into faeries really." From these heartfelt beginnings, Brian Froud eventually became the artist in residence in the land of faerie. His roll call of books establishes his credentials: Faeries; Good Faeries/Bad Faeries; Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book; and now Brian Froud's World Of Faerie. The paintings, watercolors, and drawings of this British visionary artist draw us into a special realm that seems evocative even on our first visit.

    Brian Froud captures the truest and deepest essesence of the faerie realm that I have seen.

    The illustrations in the World of Faerie are both beautiful and detailed and if you gaze into the faeries eyes be prepared to fall deeply into them. I love that this book shows the many different sides of these mysterious Beings.
