Fairies, Mermaids, & Other Mystical Creatures Review

Fairies, Mermaids, & Other Mystical Creatures

My Review

See here the magical land of fairies, mermaids, and other mystical creatures. The art runs the gamut from traditional watercolor paintings and pen-and-ink illustrations to stained glass and textile art. The styles and artists are as diverse as the creatures they explore. By creating artworks that are the size of a standard baseball card (2.5" by 3.5"), these artists bring to life stories passed down through the ages that feature creatures that have survived in the minds of mankind.

I have always been a fairy fan since I was in grade school. This book is fascinating. If you have ever believed in the world beyond the everyday, this is the book to help you find it. A Complete Guide to Faeries and Magical Beings is a wonderful companion for those who wish to tour an enchanted world.

I think that this would be an excellent book for someone who already follows the fairies, and a book for someone who is just generally interested in the topic.
I am fascinated by fairies. I love to read about them and found this book well written, easy to understand and I am glad that I have it in my collection. It's the type of book you can browse through and find out cool information and not be overwhelmed by too much being thrown at you all at once.

I was given this book by Schiffer Publishing.
