The Little Isle; An Illustrated Tale of Faerie – First Draft

The Little Isle; An Illustrated Tale of the Realms of Faerie – this magical collaboration is slowly building towards becoming a publication and will feature these words below with the marvellous artwork of New York-based artist and designer Toni DB. For this first edition you will need to content yourselves with my illustrative scribbles which are in here for fun and to help get the process started. Toni’s illustrations will be appearing increasingly in future drafts as I blog the piece in a few stages of development so you will be able to experience the growth towards being ready for a publisher’s consideration. Wish us well on this exciting adventure.

Please support us by veiwing, liking and most of all sharing wherever you feel it will be appreciated.

The Little Isle

01

Let Snowdrop Fairy flutter,

02

A crumbling pixy utter,

Does no one now believe?

No one now believe

04

Rock troll in mountain melds

03

Where elf-lore was upheld

No longer real belief

Oh, you who once believed

005

Bumbling Hobb is sadly gone

006

Where Titania is frowned upon

Doubters scoff belief

Where doubters scoff belief

045

The fabled ancients say,

044

As tall tree people sway,

You no longer believe

No longer believe

007

Jackie Paper blows

008

With Samwise to goodness knows

The land of disbelieve

Land of disbelieve

010

Eritrea altered course

011

White waves leaping horse

Die as you disbelieve

As you so disbelieve

009

Will o the wisp will splutter,

018

Wish Fairy dying stutter,

Death of belief

Death I believe

019
020
021

Dragon-heart, Camelot, clover

012
013
014
049

Flower-painter, cobbler, prince; all over

In doubt you lost belief

All gone, oh yes, believe

022
023

Sleepy hill or hidden meadow

024
025

Timeless tower or treasured bower

Forgotten to believe

045

Too modern to believe

026
032

The turn of page, the nod of dream

031
033

The whirl of pool, the trickster’s scheme

Are all beyond belief

045

Belief beyond we leave

027
028

Let dandelion fly, or white fluff sail

029
030

Let all cream curdle, each story fail

Die without you; disbelieve

You do not now believe

034
035

No stones open, no princess dance

036
037b

A swan is just a swan, a frog will not advance

037a

A foolish past believe

047

They used to all believe

038
039

Go sweep the moon, go skip the primrose

040
017

Smash the tooth, the lost morose

Forget all once believed

035

To dwindle we believe

009

Dwindle we believe

dwindle box

Dwindle

015

For those of you still wishing

017

The fey are all diminishing

knot dragon to wash

No matter how you weave

knot to wash.jpg

No matter how you weave

sea four castle

Or does a little glimmer stubborn

046

Provide a tiny isle to live on

016

In the way that you perceive?

sea four oh and a cloud

In the way that you perceive

weave box

So still the faerie weave

In the way that you believe

In the way that you believe

believe box

Believe

Say, faerie live today

In the way that I believe

In the way that I believe

The way

I believei believe box

Adrian Spendlow

Toni; the images are just to fill the spaces for now, I don’t expect they will inspire too often. One thing I realise I have not been too good at is the ‘recipient’; like I’ve done someone blowing the dandelion but not having the dream or looking disbelieving or imagining the white horse etc.

I have very little idea as yet on page layout or font type or font integration.

Footnote: I have been a year thinking of a suitable tale to match the magical work which is to come; I am tremendously excited and fittingly thrilled.
