The magical mind of English fantasy illustrator Brian Froud has come to the Paperblanks collection!
Over the course of his fascinating career, Froud has drawn inspiration from the ancient and gnarled landscapes of the English moorlands to create an unparalleled body of creative work. He is the creative genius behind Jim Henson’s Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal. He has recently been involved in creating a prequel for the latter film titled The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. So be sure to check out Netflix for this new series starring Taron Egerton, Nathalie Emmanuel, Anya Taylor-Joy and more!
Puppetry is a family affair in the Froud household. Brian’s wife, Wendy Froud, is a famous fantasy dollmaker and their son, Toby, a fellow master puppeteer and creature maker.
Brian is an expert on fairies and fairylore and his work is the inspiration for Faerieworlds, a festival that attracts thousands of fans. His books have sold over eight million copies and his film designs have won many awards.
It is a scene from Froud’s seminal 2007 work Brian Froud’s World of Faerie that makes for this Mischievous Creatures cover design.
