The Land of Stone Flowers: A Fairy Guide to the Mythical Human Being

The Land of Stone Flowers: A Fairy Guide to the Mythical Human Being by Sveta Dorosheva, translated by Jane Bugaeva
English | September 4, 2018 | ISBN: 1452163707 | PDF | 216 pages | 198 MB

Classic fairytales get a refreshing satirical twist in this collection of illustrated stories in which gnomes, pixies, and other fairy folk share tall tales of the strange and unbelievable human world and its inhabitants. Brimming with keen observations and wild assumptions on human anatomy, customs, languages, rituals, dwellings, and more, The Land of Stone Flowers is as absurd as it is astounding, examining contradictory and nonsensical human behaviors through the lens of the fantastic: from the bewitching paper wizards who live in humans' wallets to their invisible hats, known as "moods," which cloud their view of the world.

Bursting with intricate and evocative illustrations, The Land of Stone Flowers will draw readers into a world of fantasy and fable that slyly reveals many hidden truths about human existence.
