Riassunto: This book claims to be the facsimile edition of the notebook of Lady Angelica Cottington, who, it is said, took the infamous photograph of a group of fairies that was authenticated by Conan Doyle, but later discredited. Lady Cottington was determined to prove the existence of fairies, and began to capture them between the pages of her notebook, in which she had previously pressed wild flowers. In the introduction to the book, it is explained that one of Lady Cottington's notebooks was recently discovered, intact and in good condition, and has been reproduced complete with biographical information about the near-reclusive Lady Cottington, and a photograph of her holding the original book between the pages of which so many fairies, goblins, pixies and elves were unceremoniously flattened and preserved for ever. What Lady Cottington did not realise was that the actual fairies were unharmed; as they are made of astral matter, only their psychic images remained on the pages and the fairies grew to enjoy the game, leaping between the closing pages in an effort to outdo each other to produce the most imaginative and (it has to be said) outrageous poses. This is a hilarious, imaginative and highly creative record of the fairies caught by Lady Cottington, and of the disruptive influence they had on her otherwise sheltered life, all of which is painstakingly recorded in her personal diary. A revised edition to include eight additional pages, a new introduction by Terry Jones and Brian Froud, new digitization and design for pages, endpapers and cover as appropriate including new pressed fairy images; a DVD and a new sticker. DVD to include previously unreleased material from the Cottington Archive: a Pressed Fairy art gallery, interviews with Brian Froud, Terry Jones and Ari Berk and 5-minute filmed interview with Lady Cottington. DVD to be produced by Imaginosis.
