Twenty-five stories, twenty-five paintings, five years to write, ten years to paint.

This is an extraordinary collaboration between artist and artist: the Booker Prize-winning writer Ben Okri and the painter Rosemary Clunie.

Together they have created a world, and peopled it with dreams.

Twenty-five fairy tales for adults, these narratives are a response to our times, informed by our world but not limited by it, imaginative, enchanting, haunting - both prescient and prophetic.

Twenty-five original paintings, beautiful, playful, intimate, dreamlike, these works pull you in to a land of colour and vision.

Who can say which came first, the word or image, when both grew together out of a long friendship and a creative symbiosis.

What if Calvino and Magritte had combined inspiration?

What if we could see our world again with a child's eyes?

What if there really is a magic lamp?
