Overview

A delightful new gift edition collects everything there is to know about faeries—from history and superstitions to famous faeries and instructions for creating a faery dell

The most popular image of Faeryland is of an enchanted garden, a flowering mini-paradise secretly blossoming in the heart of nature. This captivating book traces the historical origins of the faery garden with the help of "eyewitness" accounts from folk tales and evocative descriptions from poets and playwrights. It offers faery spells for both good and evil, explores "faery rings" and other mysterious natural phenomena, celebrates the charm of the flower faeries, and provides instructions on planning and planting a faery garden. Notes on how to create the kind of faery garden that Titania might have enjoyed in A Midsummer Night's Dream include a plan to recreate her flowery bank, a magic potions and healing garden, and a meditation water garden within a magic grove. The enchanting text is lavishly illustrated with original paintings, stage designs, and other ephemera, making it the ideal gift for anyone drawn to these ethereal creatures.
