Overall, this a wonderful addition to the bookshelf, both as a collection of stories and a historical document showing the rougher origins of widely loved tales.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. He found himself suddenly transported to his own childhood — a time when he was obsessed not with painting and drawing but with the imaginative materiality of sculpture.

Grimm's Fairy Tales by Arthur Rackham is a kind of textbook for illustrators who want to learn from the master. Stories include “Hansel and Gretel”, “Sleeping Beauty”, “Rumpelstiltskin”, “Tom Thumb” and “The Frog Prince” as well as a short biography of the brothers themselves. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in 1996, and Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in 1999.

This sumptuously illustrated collection of essential Grimm's classics includes stories every childhood needs: The Princess and the Frog, Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Rumpelstiltskin and dozens more. The groundbreaking debut novel of Hugo Award-winning author Becky Chambers, one of the most imaginative voices in contemporary science fiction, is a truly galactic limited edition. If payment is made using a credit card, your credit card account is debited in conjunction with the conclusion of the contract. Here are beloved characters, including Snowdrop (Snow White), Briar Rose (Sleeping Beauty), Ashputtel (Cinderella), Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin, The Elves and The Shoemaker, all reimagined by the brilliant award-winning designers at MinaLima.

These being the "Original" non-wishy-washy-luvvy-wuvvy versions of fairytales they tend to be gritter, with often creepier elements and some brutality (for example, one of the evil stepsisters in Cinderalla slices off her own toes so the glass slipper fits her - crafty!

There is something particularly wonderful about the juxtaposition of the tales’ unabashed strangeness, which lends itself more readily to stark black-and-white illustrations and literal visual narration, and Zwerger’s soft watercolors, full of delicate abstraction. I have no staff, no interns, not even an assistant — a thoroughly one-woman labor of love that is also my life and my livelihood.The two beloved Grimm tales, along with the Cornish folk classic Jack the Giant-Killer, charmingly retold by James Donnelly and illustrated by Gorey, were eventually collected by Pomegranate in the 2010 gem Three Classic Children’s Stories ( public library). In a way, this is a color book for grown-ups, done in classic technique of a painter who went through all the necessary schools and learned all the necessary techniques before he got enough courage to express himself, his vision, and his humor. It is a beautifully illustrated book; though, you will do well to remember that illustrations are not available on every single page. Die Aufmachung an sich ist auch sehr schön, gebunden mit hübschen Illustrationen, absolut sein Geld wert. If you haven't been brought up in happy bubble unicorn land, and NEVER even at the ripe old age of 44 had ever read a fairy-tale.
