- Full Description
Grimm’s fairy tales are brought to life for a new generation of readers in their original, uncut form by the modern master of gothic horror--with a twist. Enter Gris Grimly, who has faithfully reproduced the original text of a selection of tales and adorned them with his own inimitable artwork. The result is a Grimm collection unlike any other, set in a world that is whimsically sinister, darkly vivid, and completely unforgettable. Both full color plates and b&w drawings throughout
Gris' previous books, like his twisted Wicked Nursery Rhymes and his latest illustrated Frankenstein, have gained him a devoted following. His very personal take on tales we think we know offers a new look, a new light-hearted but still macabre vision.
"Gris is a fabulist with the soul of a graveyard poet." -Guillermo del Toro, director of Hellboy and Pan's Labyrinth.
"Grimley enlivens the prose while retaining its power to both frighten and engage sympathy..." New York Times.
"Belongs at the bedside of every child who ever had a twisted thought (and every adult too!)." -Clive Barker on Gris Grimley's Wicked Nursery Rhymes.
Grimm. The name alone is enough to call to mind any number of the timeless fairy tales collected by brothers Jacob and Wilhelm in the early nineteenth century. These folktales have been told and retold in many forms for over two centuries, and while the particular mix of fantasy, adventure, and wonder that defined their seven-volume collection has endured, the terror, violence, and darkness of the original stories has often been lost in translation.
