Product description


“Like the liminal spaces inhabited by its denizens, this book brilliantly occupies its own inbetween place, spanning the realms of anthropology, mythology, and natural history. I have nothing like its particular combination of imagination and research on my bookshelves to date. Buy it for the gorgeous illustrations and fascinating anecdotes, but prepare to chuckle your way through the wise and funny hints on road trips, fae-watching, and how to unsubscribe if a faerie gets your email address.” —Premee Mohammed, author of Beneath of the Ring

“There’s a certain space between the most rigid of folklore researches and the highest of the fantastical that is so barely populated that sightings are as rare as will-o’-the-wisps; the hidden vale of the fanciful bestiary. And it is here we gratefully discover Alexandra Rowland’s Finding Faeries. Beautifully illustrated by Miles Äijälä, Rowland presents a coherent vista of the half-seen from all around the world. Nor are they all quite what you might expect, from the mutant faeries of Chernobyl via ‘Spirits of Inebriation’ (including absinthe, of course) to an interpretation of Redcaps that is quite a divergence from the usual ‘murder gnomes.’ If you loved Lady Cottington’s Pressed Fairy Book, you need this on your shelf.” —Jonathan L. Howard, author of Johannes Cabal the Necromancer

Finding Faeries presents a delightful, thoughtful journey through a world far more wondrous than our own. Alexandra Rowland’s gently academic prose welcomes us into fantastical whimsy—their post-industrial creations nestle gleefully alongside more traditional cryptids. This haunting and liminal guide, rife with telling details, shows that our era of concrete and climate change can still be home to el-dritch wonders—if you know where to look.” —Jennifer Mace, speculative fiction author and cohost of the Be the Serpent podcast

“This book resurrected my sense of wonder by providing a lively, luminous look at the possible denizens of Faerie, and it also turned that illumination unflinchingly onto the murkier aspects—such as climate change, and colonization—of our mundane world.” —Freya Markse, fantasy author
