A facsimile of a rare 1900 children's book of 'Elfin Rhymes' is new from Art / Books!
“A Book of Elfin Rhymes” is a facsimile of a rare but classic clothbound 1900 children's book authored by an anonymous writer known only as "Norman" and illustrated by the Scottish artist Carton Moore Park. The book is introduced with the following text, which perfectly sums up what it's all about:
Said Rosie, "And is there an elfen-land?
Are goblin stories true?
Did you ever see a fairy's wand?
Do the fairies talk to you?
Are they far away or near us?
When we're speaking can they hear us?" Said I, "There is really a fairy-realm,
Not so very far away.
Shall we sit in the shade of this great old elm
And visit it for a day?
For we'll find its true location
In the realm of the Imagination." @art_books_#elfinrhymes#elves#fairies#fairytales#facsimile#childrensbooks#vintagechildrensbooks
I smile because I’m grateful
I smile because it’s who I am
I smile because I’m hopeful
I smile because my heart is full❤️
