A word from the publisher:

Along with Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac, Kay (pronounced "kigh" and rhymes with "high") Nielsen was one of the great artists from the golden age of illustration. Known for his soft yet ornate pastels and  splendid use of various design elements, the Danish-American artist became famous for his memorable illustrations of stories by the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen.  In addition, Nielsen also illustrated various Nordic fables such as  East o' the Sun and West o' the Moon and the tales collected in Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch's, In Powder and Crinoline.

This enchanting compilation of 59 full-color illustrations draws upon Nielsen's images from scores of beloved tales, including the memorably nasty character of "Rumplestiltskin", the mysterious and magical figures in "The Blue Belt," "The Hardy Tin Soldier," "The Nightingale," "The Real Princess," "Hansel and Gretel," "Snowdrop," and many more.
Certain to delight fans of fairy tales, this dazzling collection will also thrill lovers of fine art, rekindling another generation of Nielsen admirers.
