Hi Julia,

Thanks a lot for your site full of interesting resources for us who like fairy chess. I’m from São Paulo, Brazil, and maybe I’m almost the only fairy chess enthusiast here 🙂

I’d like to show you this book Guide to Fairy Chess, from 70’s. It’s a very good introduction and maybe you like it.

Wish you the best and keep up your good work on your site 🙂

Dear Julia, what a wonderful blog you have! So much of useful and interesting articles, especially I loved General rules for the white and black pieces!

I am a big chess lover and even have a shop of handmade wooden chess sets https://www.kaoori.co.uk/product-category/wooden-chess-sets/ , I thought it might be helpful to share with my resource with you 🙂

All the best to this amazing job you started !!!
