From mermaids and giant flowers to magical robes and mysterious characters, this full-color collection of old and new art from Emily Winfield Martin will inspire the artist and writer in you! Each glorious image is given a mysterious or magical one-line caption--the beginning of a story, or maybe the middle--you imagine the rest.
The captions are hand-written on vintage scraps of paper, envelopes, postcards and more. Akin to the Chris van Allsburg book The Mysteries of Harris Burdick, The Imaginairies is destined to become a cult classic in its own right.
The book is unjacketed with foil and a matte finish on the cover; a treasure to keep and display and pore over for years.
