Summary

In the late 17th century, French author Charles Perrault helped define the fairy tale genre, transforming what had previously been an oral tradition. This magnificent hardcover reproduces his captivating renditions of "Cinderella," "Sleeping Beauty," "Little Red Riding Hood," and ten other childhood favorites. Twenty-four graceful, witty illustrations by Irish artist Harry Clarke include full-color, pen-and-ink, and silhouette images. Introduction by art historian Thomas Bodkin.

Author Biography

Charles Perrault (1628–1703), a lawyer and member of the French Academy, attained immortality with his 1697 publication of Tales of Mother Goose, a new and skillful treatment of traditional folklore that served as inspiration for the Brothers Grimm.
A leading figure in the Irish Arts and Crafts Movement, Harry Clarke (1889–1931) began his career as an award-winning stained glass artist. In a style that recalls Aubrey Beardsley and Kay Nielsen, he illustrated the works of Hans Christian Andersen, Poe, Goethe, and others.
