Synopsis: In fairy tales, as in music, the romantic artistry of the Celts is in full flower. Here, retold much as they were around Celtic peat fires a hundred years ago, are enthralling tales both new and familiar. There's the romantic tale of "Lutey and the Mermaid," "Duffy and the Devil," a comic Cornish take on "Rumpelstiltskin," and "The Black Cat," a haunting version of "Cinderella" that comes from Brittany. 20 tales are included in all, illustrated with the ornate patterns of the Celts and in striking fifth-color gold by renowned illustrator Isabelle Brent.
About the Author: Neil Philip is a writer and critic with a special interest in the fairy tale. He lives in Idbury, Oxfordshire. Isabelle Brent is one of the most highly regarded illustrators working today. She is particularly noted for her subtle use of gold leaf. She too lives in Oxfordshire.
