Overview

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.

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songs from the Spring Songs music book, and an illustrated explanation of how the artist worked using previously unpublished sketches and out-of-print flower fairies.
