Gnomes Deluxe Collector's Edition

Author(s): Wil Huygen

Children's fiction

Over 35 years ago Gnomes was published and the world first became enchanted with the simple, diligent, and magical ways of these special creatures. The title went on to become a New York Times bestseller and has sold over a million copies. Based on Rien Poortvliet and Wil Huygen's scientific observation of the local gnome population in Holland, Gnomes covers all areas of gnome culture: architecture, education, courtship, medicine, industry, and relationships with other mythical creatures. This revised collector's edition of Gnomes features a new introduction, 8-removable prints in a back cover pocket, and an all-new signature of never-before-published gnome sketches by artist Rien Poortvliet.
