'Iris Compiet is the rarest of artist: That who invokes a complete and cohesive reality with every image she creates. Beautiful, powerful and contemplative all at once.' - Guillermo Del Toro

Let me tell you about Faeries, let me take you away on a journey, an adventure.

The Faultlines is an ancient name given to those places where the veil between this world and the Other is thinnest. It is the place where faeries dwell, creatures creep, and magic oozes through the cracks. Recently the Faultlines have been stirring, opening up to all who wish to see, and to all who dare to venture...

Faeries of the Faultlines was an instant Kickstarter success in 2017, and this edited, expanded edition includes the complete original documentation from the greenmen to mermaids, with expanded sections and many more faeries to meet!

'Iris Compiet's work is an astonishing and masterful revelation of the Faery Realms. She is an artist who, with stunning alacrity, reveals the fleeting personalities of the normally unseen.' - Brian Froud

'Iris summons and draws upon the forces that are necessary in giving life to such creatures-imagination, an intelligent curiosity, and a relentless energy. The Faeries are lucky to have her!'- Alan Lee

'I have known Iris for many years. I have watched her find her voice. I am enchanted by her vision.'- John Howe

Iris Compiet is your guide to the Faultlines, a world filled with faeries and creatures from beyond the veil. A traditional artist and illustrator from the Netherlands, Iris has always known exactly what she wanted to do: paint and illustrate fantastical beings and share them with the world. Storytelling is an essential part of her artwork, and as an artist she strives to lure spectators to make them feel a connection with her work and ignite their imaginations. She draws inspiration from European folklore, mythology, fairy tales, ghost stories and anything from tombstones, Victorian photography, popular movies, and music. She has made a name for herself on Kickstarter with several projects, but most noticeably with Faeries of the Faultlines.
