About this deal

Among the contents so minutely examined are the goblin's holiday Almanack; a field guide to goblin types, with portraits and principal characteristics; and vast amounts of ill-assorted notes about goblins at play and, uh, play.

The best answer I can give is that I don't have much of a choice in whether I believe in them or not, for they seem to insist on my painting them. Rackham's goblins, faeries, undines, and tree folk re-awakened Brian's interest in the myths and legends he'd loved in childhood. Its a good laugh for people who are even remotely interested in any of the 'fairy-kin' or for people who just like unusual books. His deep involvement with folklore and myth began during his student days, he says, when he came across a book illustrated by Arthur Rackham in his college library. Edward saw Goblins everywhere in the woods, but all Myrtle saw were thorn trees, toads, mounds and a cross-eyed bat.Faeries, goblins, trolls and sprites stare down from Brian's paintings on the walls, and cavort in the shape of magical dolls and sculptures created by Wendy. It's only a few pages long with not much text but he loved all the silly faces and spotting where they were hiding and the pop ups really enchanted him. Scott Momaday, he has studied at Oxford and traveled widely, making friends in many parts of the world. Through this book's charms (poems), tellings (stories), gifts (ponderings), and lavish illustrations (by Brian Froud) we learn that the right words can still open a door into Elfland, into wonder, and that storied landscapes are all around us, even now, waiting to be discovered. I start each painting by drawing a geometrical grid based on the Golden Section, a system of proportions and perspective developed by the ancient Greeks.

Brilliantly written and illustrated by Brian Froud and Ari Berk, 'Goblins' combines the detailed, folkloric approach of 'Faeries' and 'Runes of Elfland' with the wackiness of 'Lady Cottington' to make their most visually rich and outrageous book yet. Now we're beginning to recognize how important it is to have a vibrant relationship with the land beneath our feet.

The faeries kept insisting on taking form under my pencil, emerging on the page before me, cloaked in archetypal shapes drawn from nature and myth. It is clear that his work gives Brian great satisfaction, but I've also seen him struggle with his art. His work has been featured in exhibitions throughout the world and his paintings reside in many private and public collections. The success of the "pressed fairies" allowed Brian to publish his other paintings of the Faerie Realm, collected in books such as Good Faeries/Bad Faeries, The Runes of Elfland, and Brian Froud's World of Faerie, a sumptuous overview of his art .He began to study the folklore of Britain, and then the tales of other lands, fascinated by the ways the magical traditions in all cultures shared common roots.

But he's about to learn that Amos was no mere mortician: he was the Undertaker of Lichport, charged with bringing The Peace to the dead trapped in the Shadowlands and Mist Homes, those states of limbo binding spirits to earth.that infest our refrigerators, our pets, the spaces between our sofa cushions and in fact, our very lives.
