Illustrated Grimm's Fairy Tales (Usborne Illustrated Story Collections)
About this deal
She moved to an abandoned farm in Connecticut and began to paint for her own pleasure, eventually turning to children’s storytelling.
H. Auden considered them founding texts of Western culture: ‘It is hardly too much to say that these tales rank next to the Bible in importance’.It is a beautifully illustrated book; though, you will do well to remember that illustrations are not available on every single page. Seamus Heaney’s deeply felt interpretation, widely acknowledged as the greatest Beowulf translation of modern times, is presented in parallel with the Old English verse in this fabulous Folio edition. To mark Folio’s 75th anniversary, Michael Ende’s The Neverending Story is published as a magical new edition, beautifully illustrated by award-winning artist Marie-Alice Harel and bursting with exquisite design details.
In this day of children all being "chosen" for a team and not having the experience of not making the team, of there being no scores kept making the games noncompetitive, of not being taught how to lose gracious and how to win graciously, these "fairy tales" can make the difference between a child who grows into an adult ready to face the world or an adult who is afraid of their shadow and has to "retire" from the work force because they did not learn how to "work and play well" with others. 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. Stories include: "The Frog Prince", "Rapunzel", "Hansel and Gretel", "Little Red Riding Hood", "The Bremen Town Musicians", "Tom Thumb", "The Elves and the Shoemaker", "Sleeping Beauty", "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves", "Rumpelstiltskin", "The Goose Girl", "The Bear and the Wren", "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" and "Snow White and Rose Red". We bring that to life here at Conscious Craft by offering you the best natural toys and craft materials we can find.
Stories include “Hansel and Gretel”, “Sleeping Beauty”, “Rumpelstiltskin”, “Tom Thumb” and “The Frog Prince” as well as a short biography of the brothers themselves. By her early twenties, she was one of only twelve young artists in the entire United States to receive a scholarship to New York’s legendary Art Students League, at the time the country’s most important art school.
