This book brings together approximately two dozen of the most
beloved of the classic Grimm fairy tales, including all the
classics, such as "Cinderella," "Snow White," "Sleeping Beauty,"
and "Hansel and Gretel" in an all-new translation specially
commissioned for this publication. Containing a
painstakingly-researched selection of artwork by some of the most
famous illustrators from the 1850s to the 1950s-including Golden
Age legend Kay Nielsen, beloved bestselling author Wanda Gág (of
"Millions of Cats," 1928), British darlings Walter Crane and Arthur
Rackham, and giants of nineteenth century German illustration
Hermann Vogel, Otto Speckter, and Viktor Paul Mohn-this compilation
also includes beautiful silhouettes culled from original
publications from the 1920s that run throughout the entire layout.
For adults and children alike, this collection brings to life the
magic of fairy tales and their illustrations.
