Been a bit under the weather these last couple days and I find it really difficult to slow down.  So I’m taking the day off to chill and stay cozy with lots of tea and books and spend time with loved ones, hopefully later do some painting and maybe make some candles and/or bake (ok..and possibly a walk to the woods later if I’m up to it-can you see my problem of always wanting to stay busy? heehee). Btw, this is an art print by one of my fave local artists who’s been a huge inspiration to me since I was little #charlesvansandwyk 🍄 
Hope everyone has a great Sunday ❤️

For sale: "The Romance of King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table," illustrated by Arthur Rackham, abridged from Malory's Morte D'Arthur by Alfred W. Pollard. Published by Weathervane Books, I believe in the 1970s. Approximately 500 pages, hardcover with dustjacket. Illustrated with sixteen full-color plates and sixteen black-and-white illustrations by Rackham.

Light wear, rubbing, and some markings to the dustjacket, covers, and spine. Dustjacket was at one time taped to the endpapers, and a previous owner has written his name and glued an envelope inside the front cover. Pages are in very good, clean condition - I see two bent corners, but no tears, writing, or staining. **
$15 + $4.25 media shipping. Happy to combine shipping!

This morning, I’m going back to my roots. 
If you ever wanted an interesting window into the human condition, then fairytales, collected by the Grimm Brothers, will always be my suggestion.
They were collected from actual oral traditions that were passed down for generations. Stories told to children, to instill character and develop morals.
They show the facets that make up our existence. How we love, mourn, hate, muse, dream.
They show us our darker side, and they illustrate the potential for us to be saints. 
We are shown our humanity. Our cruelty. Our all too common apathy.
A primordial refusal to be ignored.
********
I was raised, believing in so many alternates, that I forgot I was living in one myself. 
I was always happier, when I was unsure of my footing.  HF

Happy Valentine’s Day to my mythical man @darreneden 🖤

I love this portrait of you painted by Arthur Rackham in the late 19th century (not sure how you managed that!) May the wind be forever in your willows, and may baby otters be forever at your feet 🐾

You spotted snakes with double tongue, 
Thorny hedgehogs, be not seen; 
Newts and blind-worms, do no wrong, 
Come not near our fairy queen. 
Philomel, with melody 
Sing in our sweet lullaby; 
Lulla, lulla, lullaby, lulla, lulla, lullaby: 
Never harm, Nor spell nor charm... ~ Titania. Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Happy Love Day ♥️ #shakespeare #valentines #valentinesday #midsummernightsdream #titania #fairyqueen #arthurrackham #love #donoharm #qotd

Hello fellow divinity lovers, here is a poem by one of my favorite writers, Robert Frost that I enjoyed reading when I was a little girl (mind, poetry helped me in adolescence to become a better reader). I like Birches because there is a bit of sweet child hood longing nostalgia and I thought this poem was a good fit for  the card I pulled: ᴄᴏɴɴᴇᴄᴛᴇᴅɴᴇss. So what is the message here? Intuitively when I saw this illustration,  I immediately thought of my inner pantheist, which includes my immense love for nature and the great outdoors... I am reminded of  Carl Jung when he said, 'the earth has a soul', and I feel that in this pic; the awareness of  spirit and interconnectedness of all that exists...I see a supportive connection here, and I am reminded 𝓌𝑒 𝒶𝓇𝑒 𝓃𝑒𝓋𝑒𝓇 𝒶𝓁𝑜𝓃𝑒 ...With the tree ‘person’ in the photo, I thought of the mythological nature God," Pan", Perhaps, illuminating  Capricorn energy. Pan who is a often shaped in the image of a earth goat represents in the stars the constellation of Capricornus( depending on which historian you speak to) so this speaks to me being an earth element & being a Capricorn, and really overall, just my love for Mother Earth. Today, I acknowledge this.  #universalconsciousness •

“A “fairy-story” is one which touches on or uses Faerie, whatever its own main purpose may be: satire, adventure, morality, fantasy. Faerie itself may perhaps most nearly be translated by Magic — but it is magic of a peculiar mood and power, at the furthest pole from the vulgar devices of the laborious, scientific, magician. There is one proviso: if there is any satire present in the tale, one thing must not be made fun of, the magic itself. That must in that story be taken seriously, neither laughed at nor explained away.” — Tolkien, On Fairy Stories

~ The Germanic water spirit, the Neck ~

The neck (German: Nixe) are shapeshifting water spirits in Germanic mythology and folklore who usually appeared in forms of other creatures.

Under a variety of names, they were common to the stories of all Germanic peoples, although they are perhaps best known from Scandinavian folklore. The most ancient account about the neck depicted it as a wyrm or dragon, although more recent versions depict the spirits in other forms. Their sex, bynames, and various transformations vary geographically. .

The German Nix and his Scandinavian counterparts were males. The German Nixe were females and are types of river merman and mermaid who may lure men to drown, like the Scandinavian type, akin to the Celtic Melusine and similar to the Greek Siren.

Nixes in folklore became water sprites who try to lure people into the water. The males can assume many different shapes, including that of a human, fish, and snake. The females bear the tail of a fish. When they are in human forms, they can be recognised by the wet hem of their clothes. .

PLEASE HELP-  STOLEN BOOK! 
I came into the shop this morning and I am SHOCKED AND DISGUSTED to find one of our most treasured books was stolen this weekend.

Shocked that someone would steal from us. Shame on you!  You knew what you were doing too, how long was your eye on that book? Not long enough to save the money to buy it obviously. 
I am sickened that they would stoop so low as to steal from a small bookshop. You should be ashamed of yourself. I leave these beautiful books out to be admired and you have ruined it for everyone. 
If anyone receives this book as a gift, or sees that someone has it -please, please let us know! It is a $900 book. I am offering a reward. #stolenbook #peterpan #jmbarrie #arthurrackham #kensingtongarden #bookthief #reward

Я хочу признаться в любви😍 Удивительно, как люди разделили время: декабрь - это Санта и подарки, ноябрь - милейшие чудовища и "радость или гадость", февраль - день влюбленных.  И если не влюбился, считай месяц зря прошел.  Ну вот я да❤️ в необыкновенного иллюстратора Артура Рэкхема, в его работы, которые как карты Таро затягивают в себя и открывают смыслы🔮. А ещё в волшебный магазин книг и открыток "Верхняя полка"🖤. Мне думается, он из разряда таких лавок, которые при каждом новом посещении оказываются на другой стороне улицы... Магия, в общем😎

Я хочу признаться в любви😍 Удивительно, как люди разделили время: декабрь - это Санта и подарки, ноябрь - милейшие чудовища и "радость или гадость", февраль - день влюбленных. И если не влюбился, считай месяц зря прошел. Ну вот я да❤️ в необыкновенного иллюстратора Артура Рэкхема, в его работы, которые как карты Таро затягивают в себя и открывают смыслы🔮. А ещё в волшебный магазин книг и открыток "Верхняя полка"🖤. Мне думается, он из разряда таких лавок, которые при каждом новом посещении оказываются на другой стороне улицы... Магия, в общем😎 . . . #books  #reading  #lovebooks #booklove  #magickingdom  #leitura  #bookshelf  #bookaddict  #literature  #bookshop  #postcard  #illustrations #ginkgosoul  #arthurrackham #resinart #valentines  #книжный #открытки #иллюстрации #книги #магия #книжнаялавка #любовь #украшенияизсмолы  #москва #норвежскиесказки #артуррэкхем 

One of the most famous and best-loved illustrators of his day, with a successful career which lasted for over forty years, Arthur Rackham provided illustrations for around 150 books and produced some 3,000 watercolours and drawings. His draughtsmanship was praised by his contemporaries and art critics, one of whom wrote in 1906 that ‘His admirable originality and exquisite technical skill have, within the last few years, gained him an assured place in the front rank of our water-colourists and draughtsmen...As a craftsman he has an extraordinary command over refinements of expression, a perfection of touch and a delicacy of hand which give rare distinction to everything he produces…’ This fine drawing of Danaë and the Infant Perseus was produced for an illustrated edition of the American writer Nathaniel Hawthorne’s A Wonder-Book for Girls and Boys, published in 1922 with sixteen illustrations by Rackham. In Greek mythology, Danaë was the daughter of Acrisius, the King of Argos. Told by an oracle that his daughter would one day give birth to a son who would someday kill him, Acrisius locked his childless only daughter in a tower, in an attempt to foil the prophecy. Nevertheless, the god Zeus contrived to visit Danaë in her cell in the form of a shower of gold, resulting in her giving birth to a boy, Perseus. Acrisius placed his daughter and tiny grandson into a wooden box and threw it into the sea, trusting that they would be unable to survive the elements. As Hawthorne tells the story: ‘The wind blew freshly, and drove the chest away from the shore, and the uneasy billows tossed it up and down; while Danaë clasped her child closely to her bosom, and dreaded that some big wave would dash its foamy crest over them both.’ However, the box came ashore on the island of Seriphos, and mother and son were rescued. #arthurrackham #nathanielhawthorne #perseus #danae #theinfluencingimage #soldbysofa

With all the snowy pictures floating around, I couldn’t help but post my own from last year’s Beast from the East!

#Haltwistle as you’ll remember, is in the middle of nowhere but it does have an excellent #charitybookshop - here’s yesterday’s haul. First we have ‘Some English Gardens’ by #GertrudeJekyll with beautiful #watercolour illustrations by #GeorgeElgood (it still retains its dust jacket in excellent condition). Next we have ‘Our Forests and Woodland’ by John Nisbet with decorations and chapter headings by #ArthurRackham . Finally we have the ‘Saintly Hun’ by #WHeathRobinson A publication very much ‘of its time’ (1917)... #illustratedbooks #charityshopfinds

🍄🧚🏾‍♂️ Today I have yet another fantastically beautiful book to share with you all!
This is ‘How To See Fairies’ written and illustrated by Charles Van Sandwyk
This was very kindly sent to me by the publishers @foliosociety which is the only place you can get this gorgeous, exclusive book!
📖
I fully admit to tearing up a bit when I first opened and leafed through these stunning pages! 😢
And it was the lovely dedication to the illustrator Arthur Rackham that’s included at the front that hit me right in the feels! (swipe to see)
Rackham is my favourite artist (I even have a sleeve tattoo based on his work). In my mind Arthur Rackham IS fairytales so this sweet little message and nod to the king of fairytale illustration definitely brought a tear to my eyes!
🌳☕️
But Charles Van Sandwyk is definitely a superb illustrator in his own right, as this book proves!
These stunning drawings are all so full of such whimsy, magic, and enchantment ✨
I’ve included some of my favourites here, but trust me when I say that every single page is an absolute delight!
.
These fairy poems and short stories were originally published individually as little hand-bound volumes, but @foliosociety has brought them together here for the first time!
And when I say the whole book is beautiful I really mean the WHOLE BOOK!
This lovely volume comes in its own embossed slip case, a luxurious cloth cover, and enchanting end pages.
Even the paper quality is fantastic!
.
I highly recommend this wonderful book to anyone who loves fairies, magic, and gorgeous art!
Here you’ll find autumn fairies, fungi folk, sock-mending bumblebees, and gnome kings that sing of treasure!
What more could you want?!
🧚🏾‍♂️🍂🐝🍄🌿
.
If you’ve fallen as much in love with this book as I have then you might want to keep an eye on my page for a very special giveaway that might be coming up soon... 😉

“In amber tones the light caressed
A place within my heart to rest.
The lamps are lit, but turned down low.
You’ll find me in the afterglow.”
- Charles Van Sandwyk

I don't say "different media, same narratives" just because it's a cool thing to say, but because it's the truth. 
Last week I was stuck on a tricky plot point in my #wip then I remembered "Twa Corbies", an old Scottish ballad. Delightfully bleak and cynical (it's about two crows discussing their next meal, the body of a slain knight abandoned by everyone, including his one true love). I read about Twa Corbies for the first time when I was 10, as it was mentioned in "Watership Down" - clearly Richard Adams knew his folk-lore. Years later I'd discover folk music and Steeleye Span, with their haunting version of the ballad (swipe ➡️to see the album). Presently, I'm hooked on @ayreheart 's interpretation.
Anyways. Now I know what the 4 years old daughter of my main character is afraid of. 
I wish to thank my long term memory for its ability to retain each and every useless bit of information, and the Scots for their down to earth approach to the facts of life (and death).

This morning Dmitri and I ventured to the San Diego Public Library to try and look up records on our home. They have a very special section on the very top floor full of rare and collectible old books. The room is so beautiful and quiet- see my IG stories for pics. I loved the cover image on this version of William Shakespeare’s, The Tempest. 🧜🏻‍♀️ San Diego people, I highly recommend visiting the downtown library if you haven’t already. Such an amazing source, and on the very top floor you have full range of ancestry.com on the computers for free! That is something I didn’t know. 👍 #thetempest #williamshakespeare #arthurrackham
