FAERIES Described & Illustrated by BRIAN FROUD & ALAN LEE ~ 1st 1978ed, In DJ



Description

 

Faeries

described  and illustrated by
Brian Froud and Alan Lee


 

Published by Harry Abrams, copyright New York, 1978 (First?) Edition. Having approximately 200 pages, illustrated throughout with 185 drawings, including 147 in full color, created by Brian Froud and Alan Lee.

Brian Froud (born 1947) is an English fantasy illustrator, and the landscapes in his paintings are often inspired by Dartmoor. Froud served as the conceptual designer and costume designer for such films as 'The Dark Crystal' and 'Labyrinth' in conjunction with Jim Henson's Creature Shop. English book illustrator and movie conceptual designer Alan Lee (born 1947) has illustrated dozens of fantasy books, including the works J.R.R. Tolkien, and worked with John Howe as lead concept artist for Peter Jackson's own 'Lord of the Rings' film series.  

(text taken from dust jacket...)

FAERIES explores a whole new world—a world of magic charged with the wild beauty of creatures who do not live by human rules. Theirs is a realm of wonder, exquisite delight, and enchanted danger.

The two gifted artists who created this book, Alan Lee and Brian Froud, have made a study of the history of Faerie. Going to old sources, they examined the myths and legends, sorted fact from fancy, and, finally, illuminated their findings with over two hundred extraordinary drawings and full-color paintings. Rarely have research and artistry combined to produce so beautiful a result.

All the faerie types are identified and pictured - water faeries, elves, pixies, leprechauns, tree faeries, dryads, and many others. Information on their favorite haunts, pastimes, and ways of life are drawn from Celtic stories, from the great oral tradition of the English language, and from writers and poets. Among these sources are the Ballad of Thomas the Rhymer, the great Irish poet W. B. Yeats's "The Song of Wandering Aengus" andChristina Rossetti's enchanting poem "Goblin Market." Here too are the stories of Oisin, The Humpback Lusmore, the Miser on the Faerie Gump and Lutey and the Mermaid - each traced to its origins, charmingly retold, and illustrated in the most sensitive fantasy style imaginable.

Brian Froud is well known for his own book in Peacock Press's fantasy series and for scores of illustrations appearing elsewhere; Alan Lee has painted dozens of cover illustrations for imaginative fiction. Both artists live in Devon, England - working together close by the brooding woods and high, windy tors of a land that seems perpetually steeped in the faerie spirit.

FAERIES is a feast to revel in, to dip into for instant refreshment again and again.
