A handsome edition from the well-known collection of fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm containing eleven popular stories. Old favourites are included as well as some less well-known ones. Lisbeth Zwerger’s evocative and exquisite illustrations
Lisbeth Zwerger has been accorded nearly every prize that can be given, including the highest international award for lifetime achievement, the Hans Christian Andersen Medal. Since 1981 she has devoted her extraordinary talents to children’s literature, to stories as charming and picturesque as her native Vienna. Always surprising, always engaging, her artwork combines technical mastery with an insight and gentleness so rare and captivating that she has been correctly called one of the finest illustrators of the twentieth century.
