Synopses & Reviews
First published in the 1920s, Cicely Mary Barker's original Flower Fairies books have been loved for generations. Like the pre-Raphaelite painters whom she so admired, Barker believed in re-creating the beauty of nature in art and drawing from life. Her Flower Fairies watercolors have a unique combination of naturalism and fantasy that no imitators have matched. Now newly rejacketed in the style of bestseller Fairyopolis, this new edition makes a perfect gift for a new generation of Flower Fairy fans. The book features poems and full-color illustrations of over 20 flowers and their guardian fairies.
Barker's original artwork and poetry are preserved for this brand new edition of her classic "Flower Fairies of the Garden." With a newly designed jacket, this classic provides a nostalgic look into the Romantic Age. Full-color illustrations.
One of the original flower fairy books, with each watercolour accompanied by a poem. This new edition has been re-designed, drawing inspiration from the original connections with The Glasgow School of Art, and features superior draughtsmanship and convincing botanical detail.
