Availability: Ready to download

A breathtaking showcase of Maxine Gadd's whimsical, colorful fairy paintings. Her highly detailed work has appeared before in anthologies, but this is the first book dedicated to Gadd alone--and it's exquisitely produced, bound in rich red cloth and with matte art paper, padded front board, and gilt edges on the pages.

What a treat for fans of fantasy art, who have already turned other titles on fairies into bestsellers: very few painters have managed to capture this unseen world so completely. Looking at the pictures--sometimes shimmering, sometimes eerie--you can practically hear boughs creak, leaves rustle, small wings flurry, and voices chatter in a tongue unknown to mortals. Commentary by the ever-popular John Grant, aimed at "believers," enhances the images.

    Beautiful paintings. My daughter loves this book and tries to draw her own fairies. Her favorites are the mermaids and unicorns.

    I've been trying to use books of art to spark my creativity as a writer and my first choice was this mesmerizing book. I have to admit, it wasn't much of a success, because I just spent all the time just turning pages and getting drawn into the richly diverse worlds this wonderfully talented artist realizes with her materials. It felt like a true visit to faerie land. Well done on striking me (almost) wordless.
