Weird Wednesday

Two illustrations by the celebrated art nouveau artist Willy Pogany from 'The Welsh Fairy Book' by W Jenkyns Thomas, first published in 1907. The top one shows the spirit of a lake near Brecon; below a shepherd boy who was forced to dance all night by the playing of a fiendish fiddler because he spied on some fairy revels. This latter story is set on the slopes of Dinas Bran at Llangollen.
