About this title

Synopsis:

A young artist returns to her cabin in the deep woods of Canada to concentrate on her work and finds that, somehow, strange and beautiful creatures are creeping into her art.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Billed as Brian Froud's Faerielands, this is the first of a series of four books by different authors on faerie-ecological themes, and inspired by Froud's artwork. Artist Eithnie, living in the remote Canadian woods, finds disturbing faerie images creeping unbidden into her work. Gradually, she begins to suspect that one particular figure, a stick-man named Albin, is real. Her neighbor Joe, a part-Japanese musician and woodsman, tells her of a nearby colony of snow macaques--creatures whom Eithnie perceives to be faeries, and who are dying of pollution and loss of habitat. A visit by Eithnie's cousin Sharleen, bearing an enigmatic message, brings Eithnie to realize her role and what she must do to help, and she wonders if the mysterious Joe is at the heart of the matter, or Albin, or if they are somehow the same. Well meant but less substantial than a soap bubble. (First printing of 25,000) -- Copyright ©1994, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
