Description

In 1970, London’s Petersburg Press published Six Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm with Illustrations by David Hockney ( public library). Over 20 stories are presented and adorned with engaging illustrations by a cast of carefully selected artists. Nach vielen Jahren zuhause als "Mutti" wollte ich mal meine Sprachkenntnisse überprüfen und gleichzeitig dem Sohnemann etwas Abwechslung für verschiedene Ausdrücke im Englischunterricht bieten. Here, in this superbly illustrated version aimed at younger children, there are also less familiar tales: King Thrushbeard and The Goose Girl.

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.

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. Numerous revisions and reprints by different publishers offered a lot of possibilities to exploit Mr. Is a much needed book in this age of chaos when children rule over parents and women over their husbands.Here are beloved characters, including Snowdrop (Snow White), Briar Rose (Sleeping Beauty), Ashputtel (Cinderella), Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin, The Elves and The Shoemaker, all reimagined by the brilliant award-winning designers at MinaLima. The result of this testament to the combinatorial nature of creativity is Grimms Märchen ( public library) — a glorious German edition of Pullman’s retelling, illustrated in Tan’s breathtaking visual vignettes. In some cases, this book, as complete as it became in 1909, served only as a starting point for other books, where the artist got a chance to fully explore just one of his dominant techniques. However, my fans insisted that I was yet again missing out on something that every child should know. It is curious to think that we owe so many of our best-loved fairy tales – from ‘The Frog Prince’ to ‘Rapunzel’ – to the scholarship of two German brothers in the 19th century.

But if being a financially independent young woman and female entrepreneur in the early 20th century wasn’t already daring enough, in 1923 Gág — who had just been given a one-woman exhibition by the New York Public Library, more than twenty years before Georgia O’Keeffe’s MoMA retrospective prompted the press to hail her as “America’s first female artist” — decided to give up commercial illustration and try making a living solely by her art.

Tucked between the beautiful red fabric-bound covers are the celebrated contemporary artist and pop art icon’s weird and wonderful drawings for The Little Sea Hare, Fundevogel, Rapunzel, The Boy Who Left Home to Learn Fear, Old Rinkrank, and Rumpelstilzchen. Featuring extraordinary illustrations by Clive Hicks-Jenkins and an exclusive introduction by Janina Ramirez, each of the 750 numbered copies has been signed by both contributors. Although the 1936 illustrations for the Grimm tales by Wanda Gág are not necessarily the most visually captivating by contemporary standards, they are perhaps the most culturally significant for a number of reasons. She has lent her immeasurable talent to such classics as Oscar Wilde’s The Selfish Giant in 1984, L. In the early 1970s, Edward Gorey — creator of grim alphabets, quirky children’s books, naughty treats for grown-ups, and little-known vintage covers for literary classics — brought his aesthetic of the irreverent fancy to Little Red Riding Hood and Rumpelstiltskin.
