it was amazing
bookshelves: fantasy-sci-fi

A gorgeous and stylish book! What fun to explore and savour. The fairy fashions are exquisite, some seem quite contemporary and others very whimsical. The materials are all natural--feathers, flowers, seeds, pebbles, shells--and styles range from ball gowns to swimsuits to daywear to wedding attire. The spread on hats alone will bring huge smiles! The book is beautifully assembled, lots of gorgeous glossy photographs, pretty sketches, vellum, fold-out spreads, an invitation to a fairy-ball tucked inside a vellum envelope. What imagination--and what eye candy! (You might just wish you were a small, winged thing so that you could wear these fashions, too!)

Note that the book is really all about fashion and that the "fantasy" element is that the fashion is for fairies and the materials are so charming and appropriate for this purpose. The book is NOT really "about" fairies so if you are looking for that sort of thing, you will not find it here.

Ann Are they drawings or photos?

Kathryn Photos of the actual "gowns" and other fashion items, but also some sketches like a fashion designer would make of the "vision" for the dress before it is made.
