Now, Froud and Lee return to their most enduring and beloved work, in this Deluxe Anniversary Edition. This ultimate collector's item includes eight frameable, limited edition prints as well as a signed facsimile of a personal letter from Brian and Alan. The book also includes 8 original, new pieces of art by Froud and Lee as well as the remarkable pencil drawings and watercolours of mythical creatures from faeries and goblins, to leprechauns and dwarves that started it all. Accompanied by brief descriptions of each creature's origins and powers, the images are enchanting and full of magical detail. More than just a reissue, this deluxe revised and updated edition also contains essays from both Froud and Lee on the influence of Faeries and an introduction by a name author in the Faerie community.
