A compilation of Brothers Grimm fairy tales complete with vintage illustrations 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 Gag (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. About the Brothers Grimm: Brothers Jacob (1785-1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786-1859) were German academics and linguists who spent years collecting popular fairy tales and folk tales such as "Cinderella," "Snow White," and "Rapunzel." Their resulting compilation of over 200 stories Kinder- und Hausmarchen (Children's and Household Tales) is one of the most famous collections of tales in the world, influencing generations of writers, composers, artists, academics, and filmmakers.
