Faeries in the Dragon Book of Verse by Gillian Alington

 
I have always had a soft spot for faerie painting, drawing and illustration. So I was charmed today to find these (admittedly not all illustrations of the world of faerie) in an the outwardly unpromising setting of The Dragon Book of Verse published by the Oxford University Press in 1935. They are by Gillian Alington, not an illustrator I have come across before and the only book I can find credited to her is this one. Nonetheless... great fun.
