5.0 out of 5 stars Most Beautiful Book I Own, 11 Jun 2012
By 
This review is from: The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm (Hardcover)
I'm 16 and I've always been fascinated by fairy stories. I bought this book when I was in London back in November. It was an impulse buy and one of the best books I have ever bought. The illustrations are absolutely incredible and so so pretty! My favourite illustrations are the ones for Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood, and Snow White; though most are beautifully illustrated. The book contains the original versions of the stories, so can be very dark, which is eye opening in contrast to Disney or to other children's fairy tale books. What's unique about this book is that the stories are all illustrated by different people and the versions of the stories are told by different people. Lots of the illustrations are very old and from long out of print editions of the stories, which is fascinating. There's also a biography of the artists at the back and some background on each story at the start of every tale. This book is incredible, even if you just want to look at the pictures it is worth buying. I massively recommend this to all ages.
