- Full Description
This award-winning compendium of English and Scottish fairy tales and folklore returns to print in a sumptuous new collection! Beautifully illustrated by Charles Vess and featuring adaptations by Neil Gaiman, Charles De Lint, Jeff Smith, Elaine Lee and acclaimed children's writer Jane Yolen. This new edition also collects for the first time since 1995, Vess' unfinished epic saga Skade, and 10 additional pages of art never seen in print before. "Each ballad is a little gem sparkling with restored vitality. It is all here: lust and humor, ghosts and demons, passion and terror, all the things that keep us up at night. What more could the fantasy reader desire?" - SciFiDimensions
"Here Vess reaches the peak of his art, standing proudly with the 19th- and early 20th-century illustrators who influence him." -Publishers Weekly
Charles Vess and legendary fantasy author Neil Gaiman were artist and writer respectively on Stardust, the acclaimed illustrated novel turned into a hugely successful movie starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Robert De Niro.
