Mirror Mirrored: A Contemporary Artists' Edition of 25 Grimms' Tales (e-version)


About this ebook

Grimms’ fairy tales, originally collected in 1812, are a timeless chronicle of the possibilities our lives all have, and the full range of human nature. The stories remain just as relevant today as when they were first published over 200 years ago. To introduce these tales to a new generation, Uzzlepye Press presents Mirror Mirrored: An Artists' Edition of 25 Grimms' Tales, a special visual edition of 25 of the stories. It includes not only almost 2,000 vintage Grimms' illustrations remixed into the book alongside the story texts, but also work from 28 contemporary artists visually reimagining these stories. This is the e-version of the hardcover book.

Note: One contemporary artwork includes an adult word, thus necessitating the "for mature audiences" label.
