Fairies At The Bottom Of The Garden
|Lady Cottington's photo|
I was trying to think of a gift for a friend who has everything and I fell upon one of my all time favourite books ... Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book by Terry Jones . Do you know it?
|Enchanting art work|
The book is a journal of a young ladies (Angelica Cottington) exploits with the fairies at the bottom of her garden. She supposedly 'traps' these enchanting creatures by snapping them shut, and squashing them, in her journal. The art work is sublime and is by Brian Froud who over the years has become famous as a fairy and fantasy artist.
|This is so beautiful|
I adore the way the whole book is printed and illustrated and presented.
|This is hysterical|
The book is fascinating to both adults and children and I have bought many copies for friends over the years.
Anyone who loves books will just love this one
|Please buy me!|
Well now ... Do You Believe In Fairies?
