Brian Froud's Goblins

Saw it in the shops a few weeks back...yesterday thought I'd better buy it for my girlfriend, before I otherwise forgot.

Anyway, to get an idea of what the book is like, try visiting the website:

Re: Brian Froud's Goblins

A few years ago my brother bought me a book of these little Froud critters, complete with 'bios' on them all. The artwork is great. It's called "The Goblin Companion."

Re: Brian Froud's Goblins

I've always liked Brian Froud's work. Especially that showcased in the Labyrinth.

Re: Brian Froud's Goblins

Yes, I loved the Labyrinth, and these creatures in the book look exactly like them. They even have that old lady goblin with all the junk piled on her back.

Re: Brian Froud's Goblins

Turns out someone gave her another Brian Froud book a while back - pressed-Goblins. Think "Pressed flowers" book, and then imagine someone did the same to lttle elves and pixies.

Re: Brian Froud's Goblins

I love Brian Froud's work especially the original 'Faeries' book with Allan Lee. The paintings within are fantastic!

Re: Brian Froud's Goblins

Thank you Brian for the link....

I shall return there during a leisure break. What a wide range of Goblins.
There is more scope for drawing or painting a Goblin as none of them ever look the same.

Re: Brian Froud's Goblins

i hav emost of frouds art books. i love his style. i love the stories as well. his pressed faerie books were great, really great style and pictures. but his good/bad faeries and his general faerie books were really informative. i think he's great

his son, who was tobby in labrinyth, is really cute. too young for me, but there you are. thought i'd say that

Re: Brian Froud's Goblins

Froud is also going to be working on the new Dark Crystal movie as well (he was designer for the first one as well).

Re: Brian Froud's Goblins

ow, they are marvelous - remember that my friend brought Froud's book from trip to france and it was so cute and charming - we were just sitting and laughing in loud voice. Yes, I admit - he has great sense of line and style.

Re: Brian Froud's Goblins

I saw him at a fantasy convention a couple of years ago (Elf fantasy fair, Holland). He seemed like a nice guy, but I think he really believes in goblins . Labyrinth and the Dark Crystal are fabulous movies, and recently I bought his Good Faeries/Bad Faeries book. Like the artworks in the middle: you can look at it the normal way and upside-down.

Re: Brian Froud's Goblins

I'm a long time fan of Brian's, and have a fair amount of his stuff. My favourite book of his 'Land of Froud.' It was produced in the late 70's and is almost impossible to find, unless you want to spend big. Whilst I never went in for his Pressed Fairy books, I like Good Faeries/Bad Faeries, and his most recent Goblins book is great. I would definitely recommend Faeries by Brian Froud and Alan Lee, there's a 25th Anniversary edition out and it's probably one of the best guides to Faerie Lore out there.
