This is a nice and inspiring easy-to-read book if you are a young person, or young at heart, and wants to learn how to draw fairies . In fact it is a short and easy introduction to draw just about anything.
The book explains different drawing materials, technics, how to draw figures, accessories and backgrounds, how to handle white details and much more. It also gives inspiration to find a personal style and choose motifs.
Why not give it as a birthday present to someone around 11-16 years old with a desire to start drawing. But I am much older than that and find it inspiring too, even thou I am not a fairie artist. I just like inspiration in any shape or form.
