From Snow White to Cinderella, Rapunzel to Rumpelstiltskin, the Brothers Grimm bequeathed a canon of stories which have become literary and childhood classics. The most widely read story collection after the Bible, their magical tales are stalwarts of early learning and imagination, listed in UNESCO's Memory of the World Register as a vital part of our history and culture.

The tales are accompanied by exquisite vintage illustrations from the past 200 years, including masterpieces from the legendary Kay Nielsen, British artists Walter Crane and Arthur Rackham, and giants of 19th-century German illustration Gustav Süs, Heinrich Leutemann, and Viktor Paul Mohn. Additional historic and contemporary silhouettes dance across the pages like delicate black paper lace.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "This gorgeous treasury pairs new translations of 27 of the Grimm brothers' fairy tales with vintage illustrations dating from the 1820s to the 1950s. Brief introductions offer insight into the symbolism, themes, and contemporary relevance of each tale. Though Price and Daniel's translations feel modern ("Spare me the bawling," the old woman tells Hansel and Gretel), they honor the darkness that characterizes "Little Red Riding Hood," "Snow White," and other tales. The images show striking range, from Walter Crane's lush illustrations for "The Frog Prince" to Wanda Gag's droll pen-and-ink drawings for "The Fisherman and His Wife." The elegant presentation should entice readers to discover the cornucopia within. All ages. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
