It's Only Ink!
Faeries, Elves, and Sprites
It is well know around the world that faeries have been a source of imagination. Magical faerie realms have been the inspiration of writers, artists and musicians such as Shakespeare, William Blake, and Arthur Rackham for centuries. Within the enchanting full-color pages, readers will find delightful elfins, faeries, and sprites. Their legends and folk tales stretch back through the years. ""A Child's Book of Faeries" was influenced on the whole by the works of writers and artists of the Victorian era, a period in which faerie lore was celebrated widely."
Tanya Batt has put together a collection of bewitching stories with the "hopes of opening the minds of modern readers" and to remind us of the "ever-present magic of possibility".
Flip through the pages and read the tales of mischievous magical beings, and curious creatures who enjoy charming, befuddling and confusing every human they come across.
