Inspired by the woods and hedgerows of Devon, and the ancient, myth-steeped landscape of the moor, the two collaborated on Faeries, an illustrated book of British faery lore. Yound Edward takes his friend, Myrtle, a bespectacled rationalist, into the wood to show her Godlins, popping up all around, but invisible to her. The Froud family's thatch-roof farmhouse sits buried in ivy down a quiet country lane in England's West Country. His deep involvement with folklore and myth began during his student days, he says, when he came across a book illustrated by Arthur Rackham in his college library.
