These intriguing and ethereal creatures, with the myths and legends that surround them, have never ceased to inspire artists and illustrators.From Puck to Peter Pan, children and adults alike have never really stopped believing in faeries. The earliest religions and superstitions had their spirits and hobgoblins, symblizing the forces of nature or watching over human infidelities.

Although based on earlier myths and traditions, Shakespeares A Midsummer Nights Dream was a huge influence on the fantasies of generations of artists. Highly fashionable in the eighteenth, century, faery paintings were a foil for discreet eroticism in a time of prudity, and captured the spirit of national pride in their portrayal of an idealized English landscape. With the invention of photographic techniques came the opportunity to create realistic spirit photographs and elaborate hoaxes, which captivated many respected figures.Accompanying the wide selection of bewitching paintings and engravings, Beatrice Phillpotts follows the image and influences of faeries, from ancient mythology, through Shakespeare and Victorian art, to modern manifestations of faery stories.As well as her two Faery books, Faery Painting (1978) and Mermaids (1980), both of which are regarded as classics, Beatric Phillpotts is the author of seven childrens stories and one junior non-fiction title, and was one of the principal contributors to the bestselling Dinosaurs (1990-) and True Action Adventures of the 20th Century.
