Newly published, Trolls is a collaborative work created by master faerie artists Brian and Wendy Froud. Trolls is a large format “world book” that explores trolls and troll culture in a dynamic merging of pictures and words that brings their world vividly alive. Trolls reveals the past, present and future of these magical creatures through images, tales, mythology and archaeology. Trolls presents strong, individual, heroic characters and reveals troll philosophy and wisdom with contemporary relevance. Most important, Trolls is bound together with a compelling narrative: a central story that affirms that trolls are real; have lived and are living now. Trolls features new and classic 2D and 3D work by both Brian and Wendy that are woven together with troll “artifacts” and symbols and the natural world to create a fascinating revelation of the world of trolls. Brian’s images are deeply immersive, even cinematic at times; Trolls draws the viewer in the texture of the world and its stories characters born of lichened rocks, twisted trees, rainbowed waterfalls and shadowy thickets.
Come celebrate the Trolls at the official launch party in London on September 13th. Brian Froud will be there signing copies of the book, and there is also an assortment of live music and performances for your entertainment and delight. Tickets are available from Goblin King.
