Read full description of the books Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Journal:Based on the series of turn-of-the-century photos of the supposed “Cottingley Fairies”, Lady Cottington’s Pressed Fairy Book is definitely not a children’s book, but rather a morbid fantasy told through journal entries about a horrid imp of a girl who makes a hobby of crushing fairies in between the pages of her dairy. Designed to resemble a reproduction of the awful little girl’s actual journal, the book comes with dozens of wonderful drawings—courtesy of Brian Froud, the man behind the creature designs for the movies Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal—of fairies splattered across age-yellowed pages. Terry Jones of Monty Python renown is on writing duty, and he gleefully presents the Lady’s entries as a series of increasingly disturbing snapshots of the life she leads smooshing fairies, goblins, sprites, pixies, any pint-sized magical creature she can snap her book shut on like a trap. As the story unfolds, the Lady grows up into a lady and enters a grimmsian world of lusty lords, perverted bishops and a dark underpinning of carnality. A delightfully gloomy book; recommended for ages 6 and up.
