This book contains 68 classic fairy tales written by the Brothers Grimm. Here the tales have been illustrated by Harry Rountree and Ruth Moorwood’s wonderful black and white drawings. Pook Press celebrates the Golden Age of Illustration and is republishing this book so that it can be enjoyed once again by children and adults. During the Golden Age of Illustration, 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.
