From Kirkus Reviews:

Billed as Brian Froud's Faerielands, this is the first of a series of four books by different authors on faerie-ecological themes, and inspired by Froud's artwork. Artist Eithnie, living in the remote Canadian woods, finds disturbing faerie images creeping unbidden into her work. Gradually, she begins to suspect that one particular figure, a stick-man named Albin, is real. Her neighbor Joe, a part-Japanese musician and woodsman, tells her of a nearby colony of snow macaques--creatures whom Eithnie perceives to be faeries, and who are dying of pollution and loss of habitat. A visit by Eithnie's cousin Sharleen, bearing an enigmatic message, brings Eithnie to realize her role and what she must do to help, and she wonders if the mysterious Joe is at the heart of the matter, or Albin, or if they are somehow the same. Well meant but less substantial than a soap bubble. (First printing of 25,000) -- Copyright ©1994, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

From Booklist:

This is the first of four romances collectively entitled Brian Froud's Faerielands. Each is to be based on a different painting by artist Brian Froud in response to what that picture evokes in the writer's mind. The other three authors working on the project are Patricia McKillip, Midori Snyder, and Terri Windling; they must certainly be on their mettle to equal de Lint, who's one of the outstanding creators and innovators of fantasy in contemporary settings. This one is the comparatively straightforward story of a young Canadian artist who seeks solitude in the wilderness to concentrate on painting. It recalls, among de Lint's other novels, Moonheart, and if it isn't major de Lint, it will still not disappoint the majority of his large readership. Roland Green
