The Ultimate Fairies Handbook is a magical, visual feast of glowing book illustrations, dramatic woodcuts, delicate line drawings, exquisite paintings - all celebrating the shimmering, glimmering glory of fairies.

It is also a modern classic - a must-have addition to every fairy enthusiasts library. Choose this benchmark volume as the ultimate fairy book to own - and discover a blend of folklore, legend, history, poetry and literature that is comprehensive, quirky, knowledgable and deeply satisfying.

This is a brilliantly concieved, highly informative exploration of fairy activities, legends, and haunts.

Author Susannah Marriot explores every aspect of fairy lore, fairies, elves, sprites, sylphs, pixies and other magical beings, and delivers a spell-binding account of fairy realms with a narrative touch as light as a fairy wand. She takes the reader on an exciting voyage through the secret places of a hidden world.
