Edited by Harry Golding, this Fairy Tales collection is accompanied by thirty colour plates and eighteen other Margaret Tarrant illustrations. The tales include classics such as Perrault’s ‘Puss in Boots’, ‘Blue Beard’ and ‘Cinderella’, as well as the Brothers Grimm’s ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and ‘Sleeping Beauty’. Mme. D’Aulnoy’s archetypal ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ appears alongside Old English stories such as ‘Jack, the Giant Killer’ and ‘Dick Whittington’. The tales are here accompanied by the dazzling, full-colour, Margaret Tarrant illustrations (1888 – 1959). Tarrant was a much celebrated English illustrator who specialised in depictions of fairy-like children and religious subjects; a pioneering woman in the male-dominated world of fine-art. She began her artistic career at the age of twenty, and published into the early 1950s. Appearing alongside the text, Tarrant’s illustrations further refine and elucidate Golding’s carefully collated anthology. Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s literature – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration from the 1880s to the 1930s. Our collection showcases classic fairy tales, children’s stories, and the work of some of the most celebrated artists, illustrators and authors.
Small-town wizard Lucy would love to join Fairy Tail, a guild for powerful wizards, but instead finds herself teaming up with Natsu, a crazy fire wizard whose best friend is a talking, flying cat named Happy.
Responding to thirty years of feminist fairy-tale scholarship, this book breaks new ground by rethinking important questions, advocating innovative approaches, and introducing woman-centered texts and traditions that have been ignored for too long.
