MobyD, August 3, 2011 (view all comments by MobyD)
How to See Faeries is not so much a book to be read as it is a book to be experienced. The art is by Brian Froud, and fans of his work will be delighted by the images, popups, foldouts, pullouts and other faerie tricksiness to be found, starting with the cover. Froud, along with Alan Lee, created the fantasy groundbreaking book Faeries in 1978, and is also known for Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book, Good Faeries/Bad Faeries and Brian Froud's World of Faerie.

Most of the words are by John Matthews (both authors contribute their own introduction), who has written more than sixty books about King Arthur, the Grail, folklore and myth. His words appear as part of the art of each page spread, each of which should be both read and looked at in detail.

Don't just read How to See Faeries - absorb it.
