Flower Fairies Alphabet by Cicely Mary Barker

Long before I discovered Amy Brown, I had the Flower Fairies. I think this is where my obsession with all things miniature came from. Cicely Mary Barker’s watercolors are what I picture when I think of fairies. My favorite thing was the Alphabet Coloring Book, which I slaved over while camping in the Adirondacks. Even as line drawings her fairies had a whimsy and mystery about them. After I finished the book I built little fairy houses out of twigs and moss outside our cabin.
