One US newspaper notice of the 1st ed. describes the decoration by Brangwyn, Christian Science Monitor 1917-03-01 p8: "A feature of this decorative book is the dull orange border which frames Mr. Phillpotts' picturesque pages, telling their tale of the Fauns, Dryads and Nymphs, and their fancied conversations with mortals."

One earlier issue of the same column ("English Notes" by a London correspondent, frequency unknown), CSM 1916-11-16 p8 had announced the book briefly: Phillpotts "is also bringing out a story, "The Girl and the Faun", which he describes as a fairy story for grown-ups. To this Frank Brangwyn is supplying colored illustrations." Notice of this work not found in either newspaper, CSM and The Observer, between November 1916, as forthcoming, and March 1917, in review.

Mabel Lucy(ie) Attwell 226763 (6) --needs works

Other artists' portrayal of fairies were based on the putti of renaissance painting and the cherubs in the ceiling frescoes of the Baroque period. Charles Robinson favoured this style in his drawings for Robert Louis Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verses (1885) [not found at Google Books]; Robinson went on to illustrate well over 100 children's books, and a great many artists followed his example in portraying fairies as plump babies with tiny bird-wings. This tendency led ultimately in the UK to the apple-cheeked cuteness of the work of Mabel Lucy Attwell (1879-1964) in her 1921 edition of Barrie's Peter Pan and Wendy and her 1915 edition of Charles Kingsley's The Water Babies and, in the USA, to the awful, chubby-faced "Kewpie Dolls" of Rose Cecil O'Neill (1875-1944).
