I really appreciate how the authors bring together all the different myths and legends surrounding faeries. This is probably one of the most beautiful books I've visually just ever read. Such a lovely find and worth purchasing as a very cool coffee table book. :)
Bramavo questo libro da così tanto che non so nemmeno dire quando o da chi ne ho sentito parlare la prima volta. E' sempre stato lì, nella mia lista dei desideri.. e poi, meraviglia: eccolo comparire sullo scaffale della mia libreria preferita! O forse se ne stava lì già da un po', peccato che l'ave...
Whilst the other book I've read like this (Goblins!) might have been rather child-orientated and lack-lustre, this one definitely isn't. It has beautiful drawings that make me want to punch everyone around me for being so good, and the information is genuine folklore fact (if such a thing exists).
