The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''
Extract of the Dreamflesh article ''Path of The Sacred Clown''

We gave my daughter several of the "Flower Fairy" books when she was young, but I have to say I assumed they were older than they actually were.
I think the best fairy art has an other-worldly look (some can be found on the link in the original post), Brian Froud's modern "Labyrinth" goblins for example.  A lot can be downright creepy. Richard Dadd's work, for instance.

I used to get similar themed items for my older daughter. Calenders, sky dancer toys, pictures etc. She loved them

Just today I bought a bunch of Soviet children's picture books. The series was produced by Gosznak. They printed money, documents and books like this.

In particular, there were reprints of books with illustrations by the artist Bilibin, which were first printed in 1899 to 1902 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivan_Bilibin



But not only that.

Sorry for the errors, rudeness and stupidity. It's not me, this online translator. Really convenient?

I'm also a fan of Ivan Bilibin and i have finnish language versions of two of his fairytale books. (Printed in 1977)

Taikalinnun sulka / The Tale of Ivan the Tsar's Son, The Firebird and the Grey Wolf
Sammakkoprinsessa / The Frog Princess

His art style is very close to art nouveau.

Yes. The tale of Ivan Tsarevich has already been, but the child still does not know how to handle books carefully.

Now there is a spare book Smiley

Russian artists of that time actively participated in the pan-European artistic process.
