This book is a masterpiece of fantasy artwork and writing and comprised of a number of tantalizing Nordic fairy tales written by Asbjornsen in the early 19th century. They just don’t make storybooks like this anymore, and could easily be appreciated by young readers and adults alike. The work is illustrated with forty six stunning images produced by the brilliant Kay Nielsen, and some of his life’s best work can be seen in this book, now available in convenient epub3 format for view on your smart phone, tablet or computer. Nielsen dedicated years into turning these old wives tales and stories of old into an amazing visual journey. Children these days don’t get to see sensational pieces of writing and illustration like this, however, back in its day, this book would have been the worlds greatest achievement in illustrated childrens’ fantasy. The stories in this book contain heroic journeys, the grotesque and the supernatural, and for those reasons, adults can also enjoy going through this amazing piece of literature. Resurrected from antiquity, the stunning ‘East of the Sun and West of the Moon’ is now conveniently available for you to read on your device.
