About this deal

Lady Angelica Cottington took the infamous p hotograph of a group of fairies that was authenticated by Ar thur Conan Doyle. Not a lot of these books have images, so you're going to have to either read all them, or try to skim over them to see if there are any visuals you would like. All used books might have various degrees of writing, highliting and wear and tear and possibly be an ex-library with the usual stickers and stamps. Fast-forward to 1994, when Monty Python member Terry Jones released this book, "proving" that the fairies did exist -- and that they had been pressed (squashed, really) like faded roses in the pages of a book kept by one "Lady Cottington. I would have taken the whole thing as a personal affront and refused to ever watch Monty Python again because Terry Jones would have been DEAD TO ME.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all of them, but I might pick and choose some text and images for backgrounds on a homemade grimoire or something. There was no indication whatsoever that this was anything other than a light picture book, after all, so it was jarring and not exactly funny.Designed to resemble a reproduction of the awful little girl’s actual journal, the book comes with dozens of wonderful drawings—courtesy of Brian Froud, the man behind the creature designs for the movies Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal—of fairies splattered across age-yellowed pages.

Realizing that the rape was in there more to show that the woman was being oppressed by society and disbelieved every time she mentioned the fairies (which were causing this. They like to mess with Angelica and at some point things start to get out of hand in a sexual nature. The story is typical Monty Python -- lots of sexual innuendo, double-entendre, and some not-so-subtle crudity.While to the 21st-Century eye these fairies look like the obvious hoax they were, at the time they were enough to convince Sir Arthur Conan Doyle of their authenticity (partly due to the fact, we suspect, that A. If you just care for the interesting artwork, though, the book is lovely; if you're going to read the text also, be aware this isn't a children's book. I also like how the "writing" in the book starts of child like and then it changes to more of an adult "writing" as Lady Cottongton grows older.

Etsy’s 100% renewable electricity commitment includes the electricity used by the data centres that host Etsy.What's also amusing is that the library has catalogued this under author Angelica Cottington and SISO classification code 908.
