Banyen's Description: 

In this exquisitely alluring anthology, Editor in Chief Carolyn Turgeon and the editors of Faerie Magazine welcome you into an enchanted realm rich with myth, mystery, romance, and abundant natural beauty. Organized into four sections—Flora and Fauna, Fashion and Beauty, Arts and Culture, and Home, Food, and Entertaining—this gorgeous volume offers an array of exquisite vintage and contemporary fine art and photography, literature, essays, do-it-yourself projects, and recipes that provide hours of reading, viewing, and dreaming pleasure, along with a multitude of ideas for modern-day living and entertaining with a distinctive fairy touch.

Faerie is a vast and diverse place, full of so many different kinds of unusual sentient creatures that to attempt to fully catalogue the wide variety of being who dwell there is nearly impossible. Here is a general guide to some of the most commonly referenced denizens of the fairy world: Brownies and Boggarts, Dwarves, Elves, Fauns, Gnomes, Goblins, Leprechauns, Pixies, Sidhe, Trolls…

 

The best place to find fairies is in an enchanted forest, where one might spy them reclining on velvety mats of soft moss—the woodland equivalent of the chaise lounge—or darting about the silkiest, most fashionable flowers or lolling within the petals to inhale their rich perfume.

This book is for all those girls (and boys). The ones who love fairy tales and full moons and who’d love nothing more than to attend an extravagant tea party in the forest. In lore, a magical ointment rubbed on the eyelids could pierce through fairy glamour and allow a human to see past our own “dull world,” as Yeats called it in The Land of Heart’s Desire—to let it fade away and the fairy world come into view. May this book be your ointment.
