I am the certified fairyologist who has been studying the original urban-fairy fairy doors in Ann Arbor since 1993. The first fairy doors  (outside of our home), appeared in downtown Ann Arbor in the Spring of 2005.

As part of my investigations, I left journal/guestbooks at some of the "host" locations. People (mostly children) would draw pictures of fairies that they had seen at the doors. I am trained as an illustrator and graphic designer, so I took these drawings, by untrained artists and extrapolated to create a more accurate images. By combining the children's (and some adults') visions with my training, I have created 2 page spreads; an original drawing followed by my reinterpretation of each fairy, to construct "Who's Behind the Fairy Doors?".

The first edition was a best seller and in fact sold out. I have had requests from retailers and customers to reprint. Printing is rather expensive, so rather than shouldering the entire cost, I have decided to enlist your participation.

The revised edition of "Who's Behind the Fairy Doors?", will update some material and include new drawings  not seen in the 1st printing.

I hope to raise the costs of printing. If I am able to raise funds beyond that, I can use additional funds for the shipping costs and perhaps the printing of additional urban-fairy materials; postcards, greeting cards or posters.
