I am going to throw something out here, which is a bit off topic, but as a fantasy artist, muse and nutter, I figure where better to send out a thought for a fairy book than to such a marvelous community.
I am looking for the title, author, perhaps even the book, of a fairy book I read in school so many years ago. Something found in a dusty old room of a school library, that had been there for many years before I was there certainly. I probably read it in the late 50's. This is what I remember about it.
The book was in seven parts. It was about seven colored doors, and seven keys. Each door led to a different faery realm. One of the doors was Indigo. It was written in a very old style, and had the most amazing illustrations.
Any leads would be quite appreciated. I do not know why this has been bugging me, but for several years now, it keeps coming up in my mind, so I have decided to try and actually find it again.
