THINGSText: Naoko Fukushi

23 fairy tales are lovingly illustrated by Die Gestalten favourites. Gestalten is well known for publishing artistic books with an interesting theme. 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.

Little Snow-White: Chisato Shinya

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. Masterfully executed, convincing and extraordinarily fun, this classical hardcover volume will make an ideal present for children, their parents or even yourself.
