Famed for his charming illustrations of elves, fairies, and gnomes, the prominent Victorian artist Richard Doyle (1824-1883) produced a host of these delightful characters for The Princess Nobody: A Tale of Fairyland, a book he created with British author Andrew Lang in 1884.
Illustrator Marty Noble has skillfully adapted 29 of the English artist's most delightful watercolors from that enchanting book. Brimming with a multitude of nature’s tiniest creatures of the air, field, and stream, the collection also features pixies, imps, and a petite princess and an equally diminutive prince. These captivating figures can be brought to life by colorists and fairyland devotees as they apply their own hues to enchanting scenes of mischievous sprites at play. Captions accompany each illustration.
