‘The Yellow Fairy Book – Illustrated by H. J. Ford’ forms part of Andrew Lang’s ‘Coloured’ Fairy Books series - a series of twelve collections of fairy tales, published between 1889 and 1910. Each volume is distinguished by its own colour, and all in all, 437 tales from a wide array of cultures and countries are presented. Andrew Lang (1844 – 1912) was a Scots poet, novelist and literary critic, with a passion for folkloric story telling. Most of his volumes (including this, ‘The Yellow Fairy Book’) were beautifully illustrated by Henry J. Ford (1860 – 1941), an inordinately talented artist who came to public attention with his illustrations for Lang. The books captured the imagination of British children, and later became worldwide bestsellers in the 1880s and 1890s. This ‘Yellow Book’ contains classic fairy tales such as 'Story of the Emperor's New Clothes', 'The Seven Headed Serpent', 'The Three Brothers', 'In the Land of Souls', 'The Snow Daughter and the Fire Son', 'The Swineherd', 'The Tinderbox', 'Thumbelina' and many more. Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s classics and fairy tales – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage Golden Age illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.
