Not since Brian Froud's conceptual design work with Jim Henson on the classic films "The Dark Crystal "and "Labyrinth "has he created a faerie world with such imagination, dimension, depth, and detail. "Trolls "features new and classic work by both Brian and his wife, Wendy, woven together along with artifacts and symbols of the natural world to create a fascinating revelation about the world of trolls. The book explores trolls and troll culture, revealing their philosophies, their home life, and their world attitudes through their tales, mythology, and archaeology. "Trolls "affirms that trolls are real, that they have lived and are living now. The texture of the world and the deeply immersive, cinematic images will appeal to the legions of fantasy--and Froud--fans.
