The Legend of the Fairy Stones shares the woodland folktale of fairy tears turning to crystal crosses—real cross-shaped stones known as staurolite, affectionately nicknamed “fairy stones.” Written and designed by Kelly Anne White, the picture book retells the charming lore in originally authored lyrical verse blended with nearly 200 images digitally collaged from an astounding mixed bag of art the author curated from the public domain. The Legend of the Fairy Stones was recently honored with a Purple Dragonfly Book Award for Best Interior Design. The Legend of the Fairy Stones released worldwide last year from Morgan James Publishing, named by Publishers Weekly as one of the fastest growing independent publishers.
