An Introduction To The Little People
by Margaret Egleton
This book is in brand new condition, has raised gnomes on the cover.
Published by Simon & Schuster, 2007, 160 pages.
Welcome to Gnomeland, a community of little people who have lived in our gardens for more than 150 years. Gnomes first appeared in 19th Century European folklore as wizened dwarfs who brought good fortune to the home, and it was not until the 1930s that they acquired their friendly colourful appearance. Since then they have travelled the world and won great affection, being prized and decorated objects.
This book celebrates them in all their guises, from the cheeky garden gnome to the postcard-sending traveller to Fred the desert gnome, not forgetting the Bush and Blair gnomes and, of course, the rude ones. Gnomes are ‘so out there, they’re in’ again.
