Good Faeries Bad Faeries Read Online Free - "Once upon a time, I thought faeries lived only in books, old folktales, and the past. That was before they burst upon my life as vibrant, luminous beings, permeating my art and my everyday existence, causing glorious havoc...."
In the long-awaited sequel to the international bestseller Faeries, artist Brian Froud rescues pixies, gnomes, and other faeries from the isolation of the nursery and the distance of history, bringing them into the present day with vitality and imagination. In this richly imagined new book, Brian reveals the secrets he has learned from the faeries -- what their noses and shoes look like, what mischief and what gentle assistance they can give, what their souls and their dreams are like.
As it turns out, faeries aren't all sweetness and light. In addition to such good faeries as Dream Weavers and Faery Godmothers, Brian introduces us to a host of less well behaved creatures -- traditional bad faeries like Morgana le Fay, but also the Soul Shrinker and the Gloominous Doom. The faery kingdom, we find, is as subject to good and evil as the human realm. Brilliantly documenting both the dark and the light, Good Faeries/Bad Faeries presents a world of enchantment and magic that deeply compels the imagination.

Good Faeries/Bad Faeries by Brian Froud is the faerie bible for any faeriephile. This is not just a catch phrase I'm throwing around. I have read and own hundreds of books on faeries, folklore, Celtic tradition, and the history of faeries throughout the world. Within the faerie lover's community...

I first learned about this book three years ago, and although it's been on my list since then, I haven't gotten around to buying it until last week.
Wow - can I say that I regret not getting it sooner. The drawings are gorgeous - Brian Froud is, without a doubt, one of the most talented fantasy a...

I bought this book for my daughter because she is obsessed with fairies. Disney fairies, complete with pink tutus and silliness and ugh and all sorts of cotton candy pink feminine yargh. And can I say blech? I love fantasy and imagination and believing in things beyond our understanding, and I fe...

The five stars are for the superb and very atmospheric art that Mr Froud excels at. The downside is the writing left me feeling meh, but lets not dwell on that. GREAT artwork and worth every penny for that.

Brian Froud is an artist whose work you've likely seen many times, perhaps without knowing whose art it was. He has designed for a lot of movies, notably Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal.
This collection is truly glorious and creativity-inspiring. With some pencils and paints, Froud has trapped this...

Which face is revealed today? Which face shall I show you - my beauteous face of the angelic faerie, brows resplendent, luminescent eyes, or are you seeing the shadowed hood of my brow, grasping at my hooked nose and malicious, gapped-tooth grin?

A book I bought for my wife. Nice flight into fantasy, good illustrations. A small vacation for the mind.

Brian Froud's artwork is beyond amazing. I keep this book next to my desk and whenever I have a problem with inspiration, I flip through it, and the pages become my muse.

This is a "field book" of sorts, a pretend manual if you will (like fantastic beasts and where to find them "by" Newt Scamander - J.K. Rowling).
It's filled to the brim with illustrations and sketches made by the author, about the different fairies that "exist" in the World, and how to deal with/...

I acquired this book while working at Barnes & Noble in college, had one of his posters hanging in my home for years and even considered inking his artwork on my body permanently. Froud is by far one of my favorite modern artists alongside HR Giger-
Froud's style defined what fairies look like...
