The Enchanted Word was a 21-volume series of books released by Time Life from 1984-1987, which focused on fairytales, folklore, and mythology. My family had a few of them when I was a child, which I was utterly enamored with. I'd spend so long flipping through the pages, mostly enjoying the artwork. (Fairies and Elves and Water Spirits were my favorites, and I think that explains a lot about my fascinations now as an adult.) Years later and I've finally completed the set, which still includes a few of our originals!
