Beginning with their first stories published in 1812, fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm have delighted, terrified, and inspired generations of readers. Grimm's Fairy Tales brings together many of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm’s best-known and loved works, including “Rapunzel,” “Hansel and Gretel,” “Little Red Riding Hood,” and “Snow White and Rose Red.” Beloved by children and adults, these fairy tales have been adapted countless times for the stage and screen, and continue to inspire modern adaptations more than a century after their deaths.

Childhood friends such as Hansel and Gretel or Cinderella are featured in addition to less well-known but no less wonderful protagonists. The visual updates underline the relevance and timeless language of these all-time classics. These new images will delight all ages. Each and every one of the illustrations was drawn with a loving, magical touch and infused with that secret yearning for bygone innocence and simplicity. Some are painstakingly drawn, some roughly sketched; others are madly detailed, cartoony, playful, romantic, imaginative, captivating, dark, trendy, stylised, strange, psychedelic, impish or enigmatical. Each and every chapter opens up a new realm of magic and colour, and readers will be tempted to skip ahead to rediscover more fairy lands.
