Hello, book lovers! I’m back with another addition to my Bookstagram Showcase series. If you loved the features on @tata.lifepages and @elizabeth_segan, you’re in for a real treat today. Today, I’m thrilled to whisk you away on another literary journey, one painted with vibrant imagination and boundless passion. Enter the captivating world of Bridget Howard, co-owner of Storygram Tours and the creative mind behind the @darkfaerietales_ Bookstagram account.

Bookstagram is a haven for creatives, filled with a multitude of exceptionally creative minds. Amidst the beautiful photography and imaginative videography that flourishes there, Bridget stands out as a unique and consistently fantastical showcase of the beauty of books.

A Multifaceted Artist With A Deep Love For Books

Bridget  is far more than just an ordinary book lover. A reader, writer, and photographer rolled into one, she encapsulates the true essence of what it means to be an artist in the digital age. Every image she crafts on Instagram isn’t just a simple snapshot; it’s where her multifaceted creativity unfurls. Every intricate detail, every play of shadow and light, is a testament to her dedication to both her crafts: photography and literature.

Her account doesn’t merely cater to avid readers. Even those who appreciate art in its myriad forms will find themselves drawn to her page. Bridget’s ability to use books as both subject and prop, transforming them into symbols, landscapes, and even characters, is nothing short of remarkable. Every post tells a story, not just of the book it features, but of Bridget’s own journey as a lover of stories and an artist.

It’s no wonder then that over 225K followers eagerly wait for her next post, each one promising a fusion of literary magic and visual delight.

Unique Visual Narratives

Amid the sea of artistic souls on Bookstagram, @darkfaerietales_ offers a mesmerizing blend of structural artistry and thematic resonance. Bridget Howard’s talent is multifaceted, evident from her masterful book stacks to the carefully chosen props that accompany each shot.

Bridget showcases a rare talent in her artfully arranged towers of books. These aren’t your regular stacks; they spiral upwards, with each book placed at a slightly varying angle, creating a captivating visual effect. Each tower culminates in a book fanned out gracefully, adding a touch of finesse to the composition. Equally impressive is her uncanny ability to hold aloft stacks of hardbacks as tall as she is, a feat that speaks to her dedication and the physical manifestation of her passion for literature.

Autumn seems to be Bridget’s muse, her feed brimming with the season’s hues and cozy vibes. Though, one might argue that she maintains an autumnal palette throughout the year, resonating with the warmth and richness of her chosen titles. Her personal library is a testament to her attention to detail, where two floor-to-ceiling bookcases, one a lush green and the other pristine white, host a myriad of books, each dressed to match the aesthetic of its shelf – the darker, fantastical titles finding home in the green, while the brighter, more vibrant ones adorn the white.

Props play a significant role in Bridget’s photos. From fantasy-inspired items like daggers, swords, and an enviable collection of crowns, each element is chosen with precision, adding layers of meaning to her shots. What’s especially intriguing is her ability to make seemingly mundane or even withered objects, like dead flowers, come alive in her frames. Combined with her ‘dark faerie tale’ aesthetic, they lend an almost ethereal quality to her compositions.

Every now and then, Bridget herself graces her feed, posing in creations reminiscent of the artistry seen in Elizabeth Sagan’s work. However, these are but occasional glimpses, allowing her Bookstagram to maintain a unique identity, with the books and their intricate arrangements always taking center stage.

Bridget’s @darkfaerietales_ is more than just a Bookstagram account. It’s a visual narrative that combines passion, creativity, and a deep-seated love for literature in a way that is both enchanting and inspiring.
