Long the spritely subject of myth and folklore, it seems that even today fairies are alive and well, flitting about on the fringes of what we consider reality. Suza Scalora collects the evidence in The Fairies: Photographic Evidence of the Existence of Another World, presenting color-drenched photographs of fairies captured by her stealthy lens. After seeing her first fairy, "a small green creature with delicate yellow wings that sparkled in the sun," she went on a mission: "I set out across the world to catalog and photograph every fairy I could find." Indeed, each ethereal being is carefully classified by its common name, other names, sighting date and location, and history. For fellow fairy fanciers, peak sighting seasons and lures are also provided (pencils attract Eugenie, the Emerald Forest Fairy, while black volcanic sand is required for Ophelia, the Pearl-White Fairy). Whether you're a believer or not, the prints are truly beautiful, and Scalora's passionate, detailed descriptions will at least make you want to consider the possibility that these diminutive creatures exist. Fairy aficionados will also want to check out Brian Froud's much acclaimed Faeries and its lovely sequel, Good Faeries, Bad Faeries. --Brangien DavisAbout the Author:
