Flower Fairies of the Springtime: A Celebrationby Cicely Mary Barker, Frederick Warne
In 1923, Cicely Mary Barker published Flower Fairies of the Spring, a collection of lovely watercolors and whimsical rhymes based on her knowledge of plants and flowers and her artistic studies of real children. An immediate success, this first volume led to seven more books of Flower Fairies and, along with Barker�s religious work, form the basis of her enduring popularity with adults and children alike. Frederick Warne is happy to celebrate the 75th Anniversary with a special edition of Cicely Mary Barker�s first book. Collectors and fans will treasure the Celebration which features all the poems and pictures from Flower Fairies of the Spring (both past and present editions), as well as an informative introduction featuring a short biography of the artist, a history of fairies in art, a decorative time-line of fairy history, songs from the Spring Songs music book, and an illustrated explanation of how the artist worked using previously unpublished sketches and out-of-print flower fairies.
