    I've come across excellent books about fairies which were amazing in reference and incredible with inspiration.

    I highly recommend, Fairypedia (DK publishing) It referred to another book, but at the moment I can't find the title in my teeny writing. I'll post it when I find it.

    I've been partial to Katharine Briggs' An Encyclopedia of Fairies (Pantheon, 1978). It's more academic with hundreds of references but you can find nearly any fairy or bit of fairy folklore in it. It's kind of hard to find now (well, kind of expensive) but it's really comprehensive. It also includes cross-referenced motifs: like which fairy-types are helpful, traditionally.

    There's another tome of fairies. It covers fairies of each element, those of nature, those about house holds and weather. It's called "The Fairy Bible".
