Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book

Lady Cottington’s Pressed Fairy Book
Weight: 2 lbs
Method of Disposal: Left in Inman Park area

On a far less serious note, I am getting rid of a Pressed Fairy Book.  What a strange little thing…
One of my dearest friend’s mom loved the smooshed fairies and had written a book about fairies herself and, somehow, that influenced me to have this book all this time.  A woman sits very still and waits for a fairy to land in her book and then she smashes it.  She writes about their fear, her excitement, her growth.  It is actually quite disturbing, but I can see how some people might find it entertaining so I hope it finds a new home with one of those folks.  No, in all honesty, the drawings of the fairies are well done and all in good fun.  It even comes with a publisher’s note about The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Fairies, and it explains that only two fairies really suffered.  It is cute.
