Fairie-ality Style: A Sourcebook of Inspirations from Nature by David Ellwand, 144 pp, RL All Ages
Fairie-ality Style: A Sourcebook of Inspirations from Nature, is the sole creation of David Ellwand, the creative mind, eye and hands behind the first Fairie-ality book, Fairie-ality: The Fashion Collection from the House of Ellwand. With this book, Ellwand moves beyond Fairie fashion to Fairie lifestyles. There are photos of Fairie houses and fairie furniture as well as a little bit more of the fanciful Fairie fashions that we came to love in the first book. Visually, Ellwand's eye for nature and whimsy along with his magnificent sense of color make for a stunning book that will enthrall adults and children alike. His works are so visually compelling that readers will not even miss the text that was part of the first book. Young readers who are crafty will, again, want to run outside and begin making Fairie houses and clothes from the natural world around them and others might want to sit down and write and illustrate stories about the fairies who wear the clothes and live in the houses that can be found inside the pages of this beautiful book. Like Fairie-ality: The Fashion Collection of the House of Ellwand, Fairie-ality Style: A Sourcebook of Inspirations from Nature is available in paperback.
