New edition of Sophia Morrison's Manx Fairy Tales

Lily Publication's new edition of Sophia Morrison's Manx Fairy Tales includes all 52 fairy tales edited by Bob Carswell, a number of stories and music on an audio-CD, and some beautifully rich colour-illustrations by local artist Julia Ashby Smyth. The result is an attractive, contemporary-feeling hard-back edition of this well-loved traditional book, which was first published in 1911.

Culture Vannin had a considerable involvement in the book, assisting Lily Publications by providing a grant of £2,075 for Ashby-Smyth's illustrations, as well as producing the audio CD.
