Lang’s Fairy Books
This captivating image comes from the first edition of Scottish poet and anthropologist Andrew Lang’s The Violet Fairy Book. Compiled in 1901 by Lang and illustrated by Henry Justice Ford, the book was one in a twelve-part series known as Lang’s Fairy Books, with each book named for the colour of its fairy.
Our Violet Fairy journal reproduces the front cover of Lang’s Violet Fairy Book. Published in 1901, it included stories such as “The Story of the Wonderful Beggars” and “The Princess who was Hidden Underground.” The stories were gathered from places like Romania, Japan, Lithuania, Portugal and Russia. Here, Ford’s Violet Fairy illustration offers a classical and timeless quality, perfect for a book that continues to be loved by young and old alike.
