Once upon a time, when magic was common and princesses were many, there lived a powerful wizard named Druth. He could transform a prince into a toad, or a shepherd boy into a sheep by a mere flick of his finger. But no matter how hard he tried he could not enchant a princess by any magic at all. Enraged and humiliated, Druth took revenge upon three kingdoms whose princesses he was unable to enchant. He flooded their lands and imprisoned the people in a deep, unending sleep. He saved one princess alone, however. She was a baby named Lona whom Druth planned to raise himself until she was old enough to enchant. Some new spell, he was certain, would eventually succeed. But when she grew up, Lona showed surprising courage, challenging the mighty wizard’s power.

Written and photographed by Dare Wright, Lona: A Fairy Tale, was intended for an older audience than her earlier well-known Lonely Doll books. Wright photographed herself in the book as the full-sized Princess Lona , and she then used the doll as the enchanted small-sized version. The magic special effects in the pictures were created in Dare’s closet darkroom long before the advent of digital help (https://darewright.com/dare-wright-books/).
