THE KNICKERBOCKER CLASSICS
GRIMM’S FAIRY TALES
By Brothers Grimm
“THE KNICKERBOCKER CLASSICS bring together the essential works of classic authors in stunning editions to be collected and enjoyed. Each elegantly designed cloth-bound softcover features an elastic closure, as well as a comprehensive introduction, providing the reader with enlightening information on the author’s life and works”.
Just to look at the book and to hold it in your hands is a delight. The book is beautifully bound and it is the perfect weight, which makes it feel so special to read. The paper chosen is a lovely off white colour which feels easy and comfortable to read. Margins are wide in case you would like to make any notations or simply be able to hold the page comfortably. The minimalist design in the body of the work allows you to enjoy the story without any unnecessary distractions – just like a good old fashion story book.
“This collection features fifty-nine of the classic tales from Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, including “Hansel and Gretel,’ “Cinderella'” “The Frog Prince,” “Rapunzel/” “Snow White,” and “Rumpelstiltskin.” Enjoy these essential bedtime stories” that children have enjoyed worldwide for the better part of two centuries, in this edition with one hundred iconic illustrations by Arthur Rackham, in this indispensable classic book.
The pleasure of reading this stories is further enriched by a comprehensive introduction providing the reader with enlightening information on the life and work of the Brothers Grimm and some additional recommended reading, which I think it is a very clever and useful addition on this edition.
The clothbound softcover features an elastic band which means your book will be better protected whether you choose to read it at home or on the go.
