Urban Fairies

Jonathan B. Wright, a life long resident of Ann Arbor, Michigan, first found out about the fairies years ago in his own house. In 1993 the first fairy door was discovered by the children. At first it wasn't clear what might live in the door, but eventually the family decided that it must be fairies.

In 2005 other doors began appearing in downtown Ann Arbor, and soon they were being spotted in other places as well. On the side of a building, in the column of a store - even in a shelf of books at the library! Currently there are nine known doors around Ann Arbor and several in the Wright's house.

Urban Fairies chronicles the appearance of the fairy doors, with photos and a map of their locations.

About Me

My Photo
Griffins, traditionally, are Guardians. Often carved at temple doors in ancient times, they were said to guard the way to Wisdom. I, on the other hand, seem to be the Guardian primarily of odd bits of string, pinecones, scraps of paper, mismatched socks, old calendars, homeless imps and gnomes, pencils with no erasers, jokes nobody gets, forgotten gods, keys with no locks, and other people’s lighters. If any of these things might be of use to you, let me know.
