Faeries of the Faultlines
Let me tell you about Faeries,
let me take you away on a journey,
The Faultlines is an ancient name given to those places where the veil between this world and the Other is thinnest. It is the place where faeries dwell, creatures creep, and magic oozes through the cracks. Recently the Faultlines have been stirring, opening up to all who wish to see, and to all who dare to venture...
Faeries of the Faultlines was an instant Kickstarter success in 2017, and this edited, expanded edition includes the complete original documentation from the greenmen to mermaids, with an expansion of several sections, and more illustrations by Iris.
Iris Compiet is the rarest of artist: That who invokes a complete and cohesive reality with every image she creates. Beautiful, powerful and contemplative all at once. — Guillermo Del Toro
“Iris’s beautiful and richly rendered watercolors lift the veil between our reality and the secret world of the fey, offering a glimpse into a fantastical realm inhabited by deftly drawn denizens of moss-laden forests, dank marshes and secluded glades. This is your portal to the fairy kingdom.” —Tony DiTerlizzi
Co-creator & Illustrator of The Spiderwick Chronicles
"Iris Compiet’s work is an astonishing and masterful revelation of the Faery Realms. She is an artist who, with stunning alacrity, reveals the fleeting personalities of the normally unseen." —Brian Froud
“Iris summons and draws upon the forces that are necessary in giving life to such creatures—imagination, an intelligent curiosity, and a relentless energy. The Faeries are lucky to have her!" —Alan Lee
