The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm (TASCHEN Books)
I wanted it. A friend sent me an Amazon gift card over Facebook. I spent it immediately. (Look at the price!) It arrived Monday.
And it is that beautiful.
You can find a slide show of illustrations on the publisher website. Just click here.
Illustrators include Kay Nielsen, Gustav Tenggren, Walter Crane, Arthur Rackham, and many great nineteenth-century German illustrators.
Who wouldn't want to dive into this book, based on the title page alone?
On an unrelated note - well, sort of unrelated - I also got my very first DSLR for my birthday. (Thank you, Daddy!) I am a complete and total novice, but plan to learn how to use it! I am hoping to upgrade my photo quality soon!
