    This is a strange title - starting with I guess the fact that it is listed as part of the Papertiger catalogue and yet when my copy arrived there is a different publisher shown (In 1997, Paper Tiger was "rescued" by Collins & Brown, before becoming an imprint of Anova Books - so I guess that is where the connection lies). so what you have here is a collection of various artists - I would have bought the book for the work by Brian Froud alone - of varying fame and disciplines.

All of whom showcase their works along with a short bio and description of their styles and focuses. To be honest a common theme for a number of art collections. However one of the things that stood out from this book was that even though we are looking at work some of which was created within the year or so of publication there are a number from decades before (such as the 1940s) however even though styles can be identified it is not so easy to date they, as I realised when I felt one group looked in style similar to those printed in the 40s in children's literature (oh how I was wrong). So the this is as I say an interesting book which had the ability to throw off a lot of my preconceptions and ideas.

    This book was a gift, perhaps not one I would have chosen for my collection, but has given me a glimpse at some undiscovered talent. The twenty-one gifted artists showcased in this gorgeous book make one starry-eyed with wonder. Lushly illustrated, it beautifully displays the work of true masters Brian Froud and David Delamare as well as contemporary visionaries of the realms of Fae particularly Paulina Stuckey, Jasmine Becket-Griffith and Maxine Gadd.

Truly a perfect book for any admirers of fantasy art, or anybody with a sense of whimsy and wonder. If you want to escape the mundane world for a few hours, this book is your ticket to ride. As an added note, this book featured the work of former fantasy artist Jessica Galbreth before her transformation to Christianity moved her to throw her paintings into a dumpster as a way of purging what she calls spiritual darkness.

    A great book covering faery artists with different styles. I like that it included copies of their best art along with descriptions of their favorite art supplies. I think it appeals to both art lovers and artists.

    I love art books and collections, especially of fantasy art, but this collection has some really terrible, amateurish art.

    I enjoyed this book very much. It has a simple foremat of giving the artist's birth place/date, where/how they grew up, education, influences, and their technique/medium of their work. 22 different artists with several examples of thier work. I am amiss as to why my favorite fantasy artist, Nene Thomas was not among the artists. I enjoyed this book very much.
