Tinker Bell: An Evolution

There's a new book (Oct 2013) out called Tinker Bell: An Evolution by Mindy Johnson. I stumbled upon it by accident on an online book retailer and it looks wonderful.

Cover


Previewed page


Brief description from retailer:
Tinker Bell: An Evolution is a full biography of the fiery little fairy. Designed in collaboration with the Animation Research library, it contains artwork that has never been seen before. The book is heavily illustrated, highly detailed, and will make the perfect gift for every grown-up who believes in fairies.

Oh my goodness! This looks lovely! Which book retailer did you get it from? Perhaps it's nearby... If not, I can look online! (Like you did) Thank you thank you for this wonderful find! :-)

Edit: I found it online at Amazon. The preview looks interesting, it talks quite a bit about J. M. Barrie. The first picture of "Tinkerbell" looks very similar to the Blue Fairy from Pinocchio!

The illustrations look gorgeous! Some of the dress designs look so frou-frou, I'm happy to see that the chosen final design is so simple. ^^
Tinker Bell has quite a long history, her character development definitely deserves a book of her own. I would love to learn more about her earlier designs and stories. The designs can provide inspiration for fairy art too.

It would cost me $35 to purchase it on Amazon.. Oof, I don't really have that much spending money for books at the moment. Maybe the price will decline after some time, or it will be available in the stores here.

Thank you for sharing!

I've been wondering recently if there are any other fairy art books out there such as this one. I've only seen this one in online stores but maybe I am just a terrible searcher. Anyway, if I don't find any other books, I think I might just purchase this one. If any of you have purchased this book before, I would love to hear your thoughts on it!

Sadly, They only sell that specific book ( Tinker Bell: An Evolution) online and in stores at Disney World, not even Disneyland CA has it, so I don't think the price will go down anytime soon.

Disney Fairies: The World of Fairies: At the Dawn of Pixie Hollow, is a superb book. This isn't an "artbook" per-say, but it is a breathtaking book filled to the brim with flitterific illustrations that warm the heart. 142 pages of pure pixie hollow knowledge and art, perfect for any fan. The best part is you can find it online for under $5.

Here are some pictures. It goes through seasons, talents, and some specific fairies.




I hear the companion books, In the Realm of the Never Fairies: Secret World of Pixie Hollow and The Hidden World of Fairies are very like this one, though the later is only 32 pages and not full of art. Again, they are very cheap. Amazon used section says they are $0.01 + shipping

Thanks for the info, Tiramisu! I was actually browsing Amazon yesterday evening (good ol' procrastinator me ) and noticed the crazy $0.01 prices. Amazon's shipping to NZ always costs a lot though so I'll see if I can find these books closer to home. If not, it still sounds like a reasonable price.

I'm assuming you don't own the other two books that you've listed? It looks like the "Secret World of Pixie Hollow" has illustrations that are in the same style as the short Disney Fairies novels, which I like just a smidgen more. ^^ Anyway, I'll have a think about my options during this week and perhaps purchase a book or two!

Shipping costs run around like thistles! Very annoying. I recommend looking at used book stores, they always have hidden gems. I actually just ordered "In the Realm of the Never Fairies: Secret World of Pixie Hollow" off of Ebay, but it hasn't arrived yet. I will edit this post when I receive it.

That would be lovely if you could share your thoughts about the purchased book, thanks Tiramisu! And I'll keep the used book stores idea in mind - to be honest, it's been a while since I last spent time picking out books to read. When there are about eight textbooks of material to go through every year, there's little time left for personal reading.

So it took a while to fly here, but it has finally arrived! In the Realm of the Never Fairies: Secret World of Pixie Hollow is now sitting nicely on my bookshelf with the other book. It shares a bunch of similarities with the other one, but this one is done by a different artist. I recommend picking this up if you see it for a fair price and have interest in it.

Here is some of the artwork.

Oooh, thank you for the pictures! I'm glad the book found it's way all right.
I added it to my wishlist and will check the prices - if they're reasonable I'll purchase it either this week or the next.

The Lobby looks much like the Queen's Boutique, doesn't it?
