Faeries [With Poster and 8 Frameable Prints]by Brian Froud
Synopses & Reviews
A quarter of a century after its initial publication, and with more than a million copies in print worldwide, Brian Froud and Alan Lees Faeries is a certified fantasy classic. Now, Froud and Lee return to their most enduring and beloved work in this deluxe anniversary edition. This ultimate collectors book features eight new pieces of art by Froud and Lee with the original pencil drawings and watercolors.
More than just a reissue, this deluxe revised and updated edition contains essays from both Froud and Lee on the continuing influence of Faeries. There is also a foreword by bestselling author Jane Yolen.
Edited by David Larkin. Two talented artists explore the world of faeries in myths, legends, and folklore.
Following in the footsteps of Trolls, Brian and Wendy Froud lead readers deep into the world of faeries. Humans throughout history have always had special relationships and bonds with faeries, whether loving and helpful or at times destructive. This new book explores that complex relationship and the liminal state between the human and faery world where interaction occurs.
In Brian Froudandrsquo;s Faeriesandrsquo; Tales, readers encounter individual faeries, each with a story to uncover, as told by the faeries themselves. Many of the stories are familiar to humans, but the andldquo;trueandrdquo; story is told by the faeries. Similar to the Trolls fragments, the faeriesandrsquo; tales are coupled with portraits and interspersed with drawings and studies of the mysterious and enchanting folk who travel back and forth between the human world and theirs.
