There are books and there are books and then there is this trio of lovely titles, feasts for the eyes, informative, intriguing, invaluable. All belong in a place of prominence on your coffee table.
From Rizzoli Publishers comes “Fly Water” and “British West Indies Style.” The former brings us to the fly-fishing rivers of the American West. The latter is focused on the superbly and uniquely furnished homes of Antigua, Jamaica, Barbados and more.
“Faeries: Deluxe Collector’s Edition,” described and illustrated by Brian Froud and Alan Lee (Abrams,$29.95, 208 pages, 200 color and black-and-white illustrations) is a re-imagined and refreshed version of the original edition that was published more than 33 years ago. Brilliantly conceived, imaginatively produced, featuring previously unpublished art by Froud and Lee, “Faeries: Deluxe Collector’s Edition” is a treasure chest of words and images related to faeries, sprites, goblins, trolls and dwarves. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
