Gris Grimly's Tales from Brothers Grimm

Presenting Gris Grimly's Tales from Brothers Grimm.

Here is the summary of the book:

The Brothers Grimm’s enduring fairy tales are brought to life for a new generation of readers in their original, uncut, uncensored form, in a lavish new edition by the master of the gothic macabre—bestselling illustrator Gris Grimly.

Grimm.

The name alone is enough to call to mind any number of the timeless fairy tales collected by brothers Jacob and Wilhelm in the early nineteenth century. These folktales have been told and retold in many forms for over two centuries, and while the particular mix of fantasy, adventure, and wonder that defined their seven-volume collection has endured, the terror, violence, and darkness of the original stories have often been lost in translation.

Enter Gris Grimly, the modern master of gothic horror, who has faithfully reproduced the original text of a selection of tales—including “Rapunzel,” “Hansel and Gretel,” and “Little Red-Cap”—and adorned them with his own inimitable artwork. The result is a Grimm collection unlike any other, set in a world that is whimsically sinister, darkly vivid, and completely unforgettable. Gris Grimly’s Tales from the Brothers Grimm is the definitive illustrated compendium of these classic stories for a new generation of readers.

Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, Charles Perrault or Han Christian Andersen (and etc.), these are literary giants where fairytales are considered. You all know of the Frog Prince, Cinderella, Hansel & Gretel and others. You all grew up reading, fantasizing and analyzing these fairytales. Even coming across the tale depicted in various mediums relevant to the time. This here is another such gem.

Accompanied by the gorgeous & darkly whimsical water color illustrations of well known artists Gris Grimly ...... You have something old, in a something new style. The art is definitely the bonus of this edition and I very much loved re-reading all those stories alongside Grimly's marvelous artistry.

"The wonders of fairytales and the eye-catching water colors of Grimly's brush strokes. A well matched combo"
