Faeries of the Faultlines Is a Magical Art Book That Will Spirit You Away

You might see them sometimes, in mushroom circles or fractured mirrors. The fey from the Other Side. Some are sleek and feathered, others gnarled like ancient oaks.

All draw their power from magics older than time, and with the help of Iris Compiet’s studies, you now have a chance to draw back the veil and own a catalog of these wondrous beings.

 

Bird-like fae by Iris Compiet

Faeries of the Faultlines is a new art book being funded through Kickstarter that pays homage to the wild world of fey. Iris worked on the beginnings of the project in June 2016 in tandem with the @junefae art challenge on Instagram.

The artist says she was greeted at “the seelie and the unseelie court! And these creatures began telling me their stories. I had lovely chats with friendly trolls and interesting discussions with swamp hags.” Now who wouldn’t be interested at getting a peak into this mysterious realm?

The full book will be 128 pages and feature all of Iris’ most incredible finds. Her style brings these beings to life in an organic way, often painting them in soft, rich watercolors that hint at their ephemeral nature.

Iris has also announced that none other than Brian Froud, artistic collaborator for both The Dark Crystal and Labryinth, will be writing the tome’s foreword. Take one look at Iris’ work and you can see why the connection is apt, and she even states that Froud’s art book Faeries was an early inspiration.

Go back the bestiary to support research on these mischievous critters and get your own reference guide. At higher tiers you can receive original art by Iris, miniprints, postcards and more.

They would make perfect display pieces around the home, perhaps even buying you some favor with any unearthly visitors.
