May the magic of the fairies infuse your writing with whimsy and joy...

The captivating cover art for this journal comes from the first edition of Scottish poet and anthropologist Andrew Lang’s The Olive Fairy Book. The book was one in a 12-part series known as Lang’s Fairy Books, with each book named for the color of its fairy.

The Olive Fairy Book included stories such as “The Golden-Headed Fish” and “The Prince and the Princess in the Forest.” The stories were gathered from places like Turkey, India, Denmark, Armenia and the Sudan. Here, Ford’s Olive Fairy illustration offers a botanical and almost insect-like quality that gives her a sense of scientific realism as well as fey possibility.
