Faerie Library

In Faerie-land, texts are inscribed on petals which the Faerie Folk can detach from flowers and then miraculously return and re-attach. They can also go to large flowers which serve as terminals from which they can gather information in the form of fragrance and nectar. When you see faeries or hummingbirds or insects delving into flowers, they are not just pollinating the plants but gathering information which they later share among other faerie creatures. A garden is a faerie university.

"Faerie Library" is ink and watercolor on illustration board, 10" x 7", November 1991.
