Part of a series of handy, luxurious Flame Tree Pocket Books. Combining high-quality production with magnificent fine art, the covers are printed on foil in five colours, embossed then foil stamped. And they’re delightfully practical: a pocket at the back for receipts and scraps, two bookmarks and a solid magnetic side flap. These are perfect for personal use, handbags and make a dazzling gift. This example is based on 'Moon Maiden' by Jean & Ron Henry.
The vogue for fairy painting grew out of the Romantic movement, when there was a revival of interest in the nation's cultural heritage, including such mythological beings as fairies. The magic of these creatures continues to inspire artists to this day and Jean and Ron Henry's Moon Maiden is a charming, modern slant on the fairy world.
