Grimm Fairy Tales

Did you know that it's 200 years since Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm first scared the hell out of kiddies with their collection of ghastly German fairy tales? The Telegraph does, and it has posted a slide show of illustrations to prove it (CLICK). The illustrations are included in The Annotated Brothers Grimm: The Bicentennial Edition, translated and edited by Maria Tatar, published by W. W. Norton & Co on 2 November 2012, price £23.75. The book includes 150 illustrations, many of them in colour, by top artists such as George Cruikshank, Warwick Goble, Walter Crane and the great Arthur Rackham (his Cinderella (1919) shown above).
