Bernard Sleigh (British, 1872–1954)
An Anciente Mappe of Fairyland: Newly Discovered and Set Forth, c. 1920
“There lingers a faint, plaintive music, as of far-away organ pipes, of whispering harps, and the sighing of wind amongst the reeds.” In his text accompanying this map, artist Bernard Sleigh detailed the secret to entering the magical world called Fairyland: the key is in the heart of every child. His booklet—a guide—is included here in full, so your eyes, too, may be opened to the realm’s rainbow-guarded shores. Both the booklet and the map are in the Geography and Map Division of the Library of Congress, the world’s largest library, holding more than 162 million items.
