Pook Press are reprinting this version of Grimm’s Fairy Tales in hope that it will delight children and adults alike. Here is presented 49 classic fairy tales including Briar Rose, Hans in Luck, Cat-Skin, The Frog Prince, The Elves and the Cobbler, The Dancing Shoes and Hansel and Grethel among others. These tales have been decorated by the wonderful R. Anning Bell, a famous illustrator of the Golden Age of Illustration. Pook Press are working to republish these classic works to celebrate the Golden Age of Illustration. During this period, the popularity, abundance and – most importantly – the unprecedented upsurge in the quality of illustrated works marked an astounding change in the way that publishers, artists and the general public came to view this hitherto insufficiently esteemed art form.
