Description

Iris' Kickstarter edition has been out of print for sometime. Now she has improved upon that edition with 16 pages of new illustrations, a larger book size, forewords by Alan Lee and Brian Froud, and a slightly edited text, all printed on deluxe paper and bound in cloth with a gold foil stamped dust jacket.

From the publisher:

Let me tell you about Faeries, let me take you away on a journey, an adventure...

The Faultlines is an ancient name given to those places where the veil between this world and the Other is thinnest. It is the place where faeries dwell, creatures creep, and magic oozes through the cracks. Recently the Faultlines have been stirring, opening up to all who wish to see, and to all who dare to venture...

Faeries of the Faultlines was an instant Kickstarter success in 2017, and this edited, expanded edition includes the complete original documentation from the greenmen to mermaids, with an expansion of several sections, and more illustrations by Iris.

"Iris Compiet is the rarest of artist: That who invokes a complete and cohesive reality with every image she creates. Beautiful, powerful and contemplative all at once." -- Guillermo Del Toro

"Iris's beautiful and richly rendered watercolors lift the veil between our reality and the secret world of the fey, offering a glimpse into a fantastical realm inhabited by deftly drawn denizens of moss-laden forests, dank marshes and secluded glades. This is your portal to the fairy kingdom." --Tony DiTerlizzi

"Iris Compiet's work is an astonishing and masterful revelation of the Faery Realms. She is an artist who, with stunning alacrity, reveals the fleeting personalities of the normally unseen." --Brian Froud

"Iris summons and draws upon the forces that are necessary in giving life to such creatures--imagination, an intelligent curiosity, and a relentless energy. The Faeries are lucky to have her!" --Alan Lee

I have known Iris for many years. I have watched her find her voice. I am enchanted by her vision. --John Howe
