Fairies have, under one name or another, been with us since ancient times. They are ever intriguing, yet ever elusive, and no book, no picture, no description will ever satisfy our curiosity, fully define their nature, or establish their existence.
Elizabeth Ratisseau's approach, in this book, is to show paintings of fairies by various artists, some of whom claim to have looked upon fairies, and others who have used their imagination, and the reports of others, to make fairies tangible. She has supplemented these images with selected quotations which bear tangentially on the adjacent images. The result is, we hope, a powerful evocation of these mysterious beings.
