Familiar Tales in Beautifully Unfamiliar Light

article-image

Fantasy, adventure & fairy tale portrayed beautifully in a very different style & light by the illustrative arts!

From Brothers Grimm to the Arabian Nights & more. These illustrations create an enchanting world of mystery & curiosity.

&. Quaint!

How decorative & elaborate in detail. & how some so very English in classical posture & poise.

How communicative, illustrative these illustrations are- even in their beauty & heroically triumphant, the sense of darkness, the sense of the sinister never seems far away. The often eerie world of fantasy & fairy tale. The suspense of it all. I find in these illustrations that notion caught & balanced very well. Very, differently.
