Not just little sexy Tinkerbell or serious Elrond – you can be anyone you want. You can tweet us your picture at @BooksCarra and use #Faeries in your tweet.

Deadline: 31st of October 2015, Midnight

Winners are announced on the 1st of November

The Prize is a hardcover edition of Faeries by Brian Froud.


A quarter of a century after its initial publication and with well over a million copies in print worldwide, Brian Froud and Alan Lee’s Faeries is an unquestioned classic. Now, Froud and Lee return to their most enduring and beloved work, in this Deluxe Anniversary Edition.

This ultimate collector’s item includes eight frameable, limited edition prints as well as a signed facsimile of a personal letter from Brian and Alan. The book also includes 8 original, new pieces of art by Froud and Lee as well as the remarkable pencil drawings and watercolours of mythical creatures from faeries and goblins, to leprechauns and dwarves that started it all.

Accompanied by brief descriptions of each creature’s origins and powers, the images are enchanting and full of magical detail. More than just a reissue, this deluxe revised and updated edition also contains essays from both Froud and Lee on the influence of Faeries and an introduction by a name author in the Faerie community.

The remarkable package will be a delight to fans of the previous title and those who are just discovering this stunning book for the first time.

Why just Disney Fairies? That is a real restriction to those whose imaginations are limited only by their Fae blood! Just saying. Disney was OK, but there are other fairies out there too!
