Flower Fairies of the Summer, Cicely Mary Barker
First published in the 1920s, Cicely Mary Barker’s original Flower Fairies books have been loved for generations. Like the pre-Raphaelite painters whom she so admired, Barker believed in re-creating the beauty of nature in art and drawing from life.
Her Flower Fairies water colours have a unique combination of naturalism and fantasy that no imitators have matched. Now newly rejacketed in the style of bestseller Fairyopolis, this new edition makes a perfect gift for a new generation of Flower Fairy fans.
The book features poems and full-colour illustrations of over 20 flowers and their guardian fairies.
