Some years ago a website was recommended to me (which I don't remember the name of now or if it's active or not) and it happened to be of Scalora's photography. Gods, goddesses, religious ideas...I was utterly amazed and simply fell in love with her style. Fairies is simply one of those books to page through for inspiration, for me anyhow, when it comes to writing or such.

Oh this book is GORGEOUS! Every photograph is like eye candy for the discerning eye. Of note is the use of many different races of model. Many different cultures and mythology are used here and reinterrpreted for a focus on the fey. It works beautifully.

I bought this book on a whim, mostly because Suza Scalora has been the photographer who creates the covers for Francesca Lia Block's books. I was happy to have spent the money and have bought 2 more of her books since this one and never regretted

I received this book for Christmas when I was very young and obsessed with fairies. At the time, I still 100% believed they existed and could be photographed, so I believed every photo was real.
I was deeply saddened when I found there was a page at the end of the book that credited the "models." I was so let down to learn these were not real fairies.

Still, it is an absolutely STUNNING collection of fairy photos.

Scalora does it again, with her captivating photography showcasing surrealism in her images. I had a pleasure reading the informative text she conveys to each fairy; it almost seems as though she actually believes in there existence, with that thought alone seems interestingly nice.

This book is magical. Each picture is beautifully imaginative and well detailed. Lovely back stories to go with the pictures brings more light to your imagination. Love love love going back and looking at these delicate pictures. True they are not real fairies but it sure makes you wish they were.
