These days most fantasy creatures found in movies are realized via CGI, and puppetry work like those in Labyrinth have become a lost art. This book takes us back to the good old days of motion puppetry and is a perfect companion to the ageless fantasy classic. Most highly recommended.

The Labyrinth and Dark Crystals is one of the greatest films made! What a treasure to have.

Beautiful. Must watch Labyrinth one day.

How beautiful!

I’ve always been a big fan of Brian Froud; his collaboration with Alan Lee on Fairies has been one of my favorite artbooks for years!

I’m a little hesitant to rewatch Labyrinth since I’ve grown accostumed to the CGI landscapes and therefore fear the old visual masterpieces losing their magic touch…
