Show synopsis The Grimm brother's famous anthology of fairy tales is here accompanied by Anderson's beautiful illustrations. Delicate black and white text drawings and full page colour plates are full of emotion and charm. About the Illustrator: Anne Anderson (1874-c.1940) was a Scottish illustrator chiefly noted for her Art Nouveau children's book illustrations that display fluidity typical of the movement. Characteristic of her work are decorative and lightly drawn or painted illustrations of neatly dressed children, neatly dressed with pear-shaped faces. Anderson's work has been compared to that of Jessie M. King, a contemporary. About the Authors: Jacob (1875-1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786-1859) were academics who spent years researching and documenting folk tales. They are arguably best known for their collection Children's and Household Tales published in 1812, which later became known as Grimm's Fairy Tales, and contained some of today's most celebrated fairy stories, such as Cinderella, Rumpelstiltskin and Hansel and Gretel. Many of the earliest children's books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Pook Press are working to republish these classic works in affordable, high quality, colour editions, using the original text and artwork so these works can delight another generation of children.
