Description

We believe that giving children the right materials, they will make and play with beautiful things that last a lifetime. Numerous revisions and reprints by different publishers offered a lot of possibilities to exploit Mr. Having NEVER read a fairy-tale in my life and my first introduction to them this week by movie involved high pitched singing and singing animals. See more, including Gaiman in conversation with Art Spiegelman and Françoise Mouly on what makes fairy tales endure, here.

Grimm's Fairy Tales by Arthur Rackham is a kind of textbook for illustrators who want to learn from the master.

Gathered here — after similar collections of the world’s most beautiful illustrations for Alice in Wonderland and The Hobbit — are the finest and most culturally notable such Grimm reimaginings of which I’m aware. But it was Gág’s retelling of that proto-feminist folktale, which she had learned from her Austro-Hungarian grandmother, that first sparked her interest in translating and reimagining folktales for children. It was no only a great commercial success, it also paved his way to a celebrity status who never stayed without work right to the end of his life and was rapidly getting better and better (and more profitable) deals at publishers.

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. He collaborated with Segal on choosing 27 of the 210 tales for this special edition, which was originally released as a glorious two-volume boxed set and was reprinted thirty years later in the single volume The Juniper Tree: And Other Tales from Grimm ( public library). Shortly after the release of Philip Pullman’s retelling of the Grimm classics, which was published unillustrated in the UK and the US, a publisher approached Australian artist and author Shaun Tan — creator of such modern masterpieces as The Lost Thing and The Arrival — about creating a cover and possibly some internal artwork for a German edition of Pullman’s fifty tales.H. Auden considered them founding texts of Western culture: ‘It is hardly too much to say that these tales rank next to the Bible in importance’. Biography: Ruth Brocklehurst (Author) When she wasn't riding her bike or making things out of loo rolls and scraps of fabric, Ruth spent her childhood reading about detectives and historical figures. Two hundred years ago, the Brothers Grimm published their famous collection of folk tales, including these thirty much-loved stories of helpful elves; giants who can see into the next land; foolish but good-hearted lads; princesses with golden hair; faithful servants and wicked queens. Zwerger brings her singular vision to eleven of the Grimm stories in the absolutely gorgeous volume Tales from the Brothers Grimm: Selected and Illustrated by Lisbeth Zwerger ( public library), published in 2012 and translated by Anthea Bell. The Brothers Grimm collected some 200 traditional tales of Northern Europe that might very well otherwise have been lost to us.
