Be prepared to be led to clarity through confusion, to truth through riddles and to a genuine glimpse or more of the Otherworld through a few pages of paper and card!
How to See Faeries is a much anticpated collaboration between two respected visionaries, the seer and author John Matthews and the mystical artist Brian Froud. Through what at times reads very much as channeled rhyme and prose and a series of visual clues and gateways, this book takes you on a breathtaking ride into Faery. It is all at once a delightful pop-up book for adults, a profound taste of the spiritual dimension within the land and a barrier-pushing visual treat. It is an adventure that repays the time spent within its pages, for if you do truly open your heart, slow down, and pay attention to the messages given, there are many different paths to Faery that may be discovered here. The book is a map to places full of wonder, you need only to open your heart and expand your mind to embrace the journey and find the destination.
And even if you don't find them, you may find that this is a gate that swings both ways! Be prepared for some interesting visitors...
"This book sucked me in! When you start reading it, you shrink down to the size of your hand and have to walk through the book, from one portal to another. And you can't get out until you come to the last portal...which is reading the book all the way through. Each word you read glows blue. When all the words are blue, the last portal opens and you're out and done. Until next time! The book is filled with Faerie secrets, but they are so magic, I can't really remember them. The faeries are very realistic, I can tell you that! One looked just like a real one I've seen, so I know the faeries in the book are real ones."
Adults who love colorful, wondrous faeries and clever prose will adore this book. For children (and those young at heart), here is a key to the gate at the bottom of the garden. I (and my son) highly recommend this book. There really is nothing else quite like it!
The Glyph of the Sidhe, which presented itself in Matthew's "The Sidhe" book is also present on many places in this one, making it an even greater delight. I think this book serves as a meditation tool in many ways, to tap into the worlds through the images, the keys.
This is more than a Faery book, more than an art or poetry book, more than a book!
Such imagination and intuition went into making this book. The faerie cards by the same illustrator are also incredible!
