Boulder Book Store's FAERIES’ ORACLE webring page

The Secret Faery Sketchbook of Brian Froud
Faeries are manifestations of natural energy, their forms expressing a unique sense of place or purpose or emotion. By their very nature, of course, they are ethereal and illusive, and so putting a face on their dynamic forces is a challenging task. They do not respond to an “airy-fairy” approach for they are noted in reality--not, as many suppose, fluttering in childish fantasy. If we but care to respond intuitively to them we will find that they convey wisdom and speak of a profound relationship between us all and the earth itself.

My drawings are the result of responding to enigmatic subtleties, and of a sensitivity to a moment or place. As an artist I have to step aside from all I know technically about my craft and allow the faeries to materialize on the page. I push the pencil around and a face emerges. My drawings are open and loose to allow the faery energy in. In the leaves of my sketchbooks, faeries of myriad aspect wait to be understood or recognized or to impart their message. My sketchbooks are normally kept secret and are not seen by anyone; they provide communion between myself and the faery realms. But now, for the first time, we're providing a glimpse into that enchanted domain.

People often ask me how to see faeries. I reply that faeries are not seen through the eyes but through the heart. The tide of Faeryland is sweeping in closer to the human shores. The voices of the faeries are becoming clearer and more insistent. For those who cannot yet hear them directly, the newly published FAERIES’ ORACLE gives us, with the tools of a revelatory book and cards, a means of direct, personal communication with the faeries and ourselves

Enjoy your journey into the enchantment of the faeries.
