International Fairy Day

I’m offering up a fairy drawing from George Cruikshank from Thomas Keightley‘s Fairy Mythology.

Etching by George Cruikshank showing a man with fairies underfoot.

The fairies look like a pretty fun bunch.

Sadly, I can’t find a name for this etching or what it might be describing. If you know more about fairy lore, please chime in.

This book is also lovely as a book.

Bonus, it’s got an odd book plate.
