About FairestPublishing

On Etsy since 2018

Once upon a time...

I have been writing since I was ten-years-old, and (as of 2019) I have been bookbinding for seven years. My greatest inspirations have been my love of fairy tales, folklore and mythology from around the world, as well as superheroes, science fiction and the paranormal.

I first came up with the concept for the first “Fairest” book in 2010, but did not physically write it until 2012; the same year I began learning traditional handmade bookbinding. The idea to self-publish by physically printing and hand-making each individual book myself came to me around this time, but it would be years before I would pursue this career path.

In the meantime, I wrote several sequels and spin-offs to the original “Fairest” book, most of which will be available soon. Finally, in 2018, after investing so much of my time and work into what would soon be called “Fairest Publishing”, I began researching and pursuing possible artists and illustrators to bring these characters to life visually. And I finally found drachenmagier.

An EU-based traditional artist, drachenmagier has a beautiful, whimsical style inspired by fantasy that perfectly suited the Fairest world I had crafted in my mind and writing, and by some miracle alignment of the cosmos, drachenmagier agreed to work with me.

The results are phenomenal, and I’m sure anyone who buys these books will agree and not be disappointed. To put my work out into the world with full creative freedom has always been my dream, and I genuinely hope you enjoy these stories as much as I did writing and making them!
