Gnomes
Text by Wil Huygen
Illustration by Rien Poortvliet

Do you know that a Gnome is seven times stronger than a human? Or that Gnomes rub noses both in greeting and farewell. Or that Gnome couples always have twin children?

These and other fascinating real-life details, pictured in full colour, illuminate this first documentary portrayal of Gnomes (as distinct from Elves, Goblins, Trolls, Kobolds, Fairies). Poortvliet and his scientist friend Wil Huygen have spent over 20 years observing the life and work of the Gnome, and their report at last shatters the age old myths of song and legend.

A book of lore, history and fun. Of course all the factual data is invented, a great tongue in cheek book. Absolutely delightful. A treat for the whole family.

All in color, hundreds of illustrations, maps, diagrams
Large hardback, 1979, good condition, gift dedication on end page
