The Bushy Bride listed AS A NORWEGIAN FAIRY TALE BEFORE a Norwegian fairy tale before it contained elements I have seen in other tales such as the sweet and submissive girl rewarded in this case for brushing and kissing some hideous troll heads with gold that falls from her hair while her assertive and rude sister is punished with a long nose and a bush that grows from her forehead well that s different The girl was such a dumb sop that I didn t care whether she drowned or married the idiot king Seymour Chwast s illustration are crayons in a cartoony child like styleEven cartoony is Jacues Tardi s illustration of The Enchanted Pig a Rumanian fairy tale that combines elements of Bluebeard and East of the Sun It was not very appealing to me either in story or pictures John Collier s Sleeping Beauty is done in dark literally and metaphorically charcoal or black pastel very atmosphericThe Fir Tree a little downer by Andersen is interestingly interpreted by Marcel Imsand as a series of black and white photos with a toddler in place of the treeIn short less than half the artists are ones I would seek out works by and some I would positively Avoid So For Me It so for me it overall an unsuccessful project The Fir Tree has to be the saddest fairy tale ever written.

A World of Fairy Tales: Ten Celebrated Artists Reinvent the Classic TalesE they get married but what really threw me was that the youngest despised brother is black An illustration of two older what really threw me off that the youngest despised brother is black An illustration of two older boys bullying a younger black boy seems to raise all sorts of racial issues which are not present in the text The only tale I really liked was Roberto Innocenti s 1920s style Cinderella His art was ust lovely and the detail was great I especially liked the gawking neighbors in the background the glistening pearls of caviar and the fairy godmother s pumpkin into carriage blueprints The remainder of the stories brieflyMoniue Felix s Hansel and Gretel was pretty in a pastel sort of way It did have a 1970s soft core porn vibe that bothered me a bit but I assume that wouldn t occur to any younger readersThe Three Languages is a terrible story and I have no idea why Chermayeff picked it I didn t care for his illustrations which are in the style of or possibly are paper cutting collages in very loud and angry tones but kids may like their brights colors or simplicityNo uestion about it John Howe knows what a flounder looks like Also wrinkly old people I think he s a very skilled artist and will have to track down something by him that isn t as depressing as The Fisherman and His WifeI had never encountered. down something by him that isn t as depressing as The Fisherman and His WifeI had never encountered. Gretel the ueen Bee the Sleeping Beauty the Three Languages all beautifully illustrated by various. Ten classic tales mostly from the Grimm Brothers hans christen andersen and charles perrault but with Christen Andersen and Charles Perrault but with few from French Rumanian and Norwegian folklore ten different artist Love the stories the artwork is amazing As is often often the case when illustrators try to get all High Art several of these selections will probably not appeal to children In addition to not loving most of them several were too removed from the narratives they accompanied For instance in the first story Etienne Delessert s illustration of Beauty and the Beast one of the few full page paintings shows a group of girls in odd hats the foremost holding an apple approaching a main with a hydra like multiplicity of snake heads and a cane In the background a man with a blue umbrellaor huge hat races by on horseback and an old gray bearded man with a purple umbrella or hat assaults a struggling naked woman The accompanying text is from Madame D Aulnoy and definitely does not correspond to this scene Another entry which seemed at odds with its text was Philippe Dumas version of The ueen Bee which depicts the three brother princes as little boys in contemporary play outfits one of them seems to be sans pants but let s not get into that That s a little weird becaus.
