The Land of Stone Flowers - A Fairy Guide to the Mythical Human Being
Publisher: Chronicle Books LLC
Classic fairytales get a refreshing satirical twist in this “gem of a book” featuring “gorgeous art nouveau illustrations and imaginative tales” (Refinery 29).
In The Land of Stone Flowers, gnomes, pixies, and other fairy folk share tall tales of the strange and unbelievable human world and its inhabitants. Brimming with keen observations and wild assumptions on human anatomy, customs, languages, rituals, dwellings, and more, this collection is as absurd as it is astounding, examining contradictory and nonsensical human behaviors through the lens of the fantastic.
The intrigued authors cover everything from the bewitching paper wizards who live in humans’ wallets to their invisible hats, known as “moods,” which cloud their view of the world. Bursting with intricate and evocative illustrations, The Land of Stone Flowers will draw readers into a world of fantasy and fable that slyly reveals many hidden truths about human existence.
