A little disappointing,
This review is from: East of the Sun and West of the Moon: Old Tales from the North (Calla Editions) (Hardcover)
Don't get me wrong - this is a lovely book of several unusual Norse fairy tales and is well-produced compared to many cheaply printed editions flogged in discount bookstores these days. However, despite the good size and paper quality, the quality of the print is decidedly lacking and does not do justice to Kay Nielsen's stunning illustrations. If you compare this edition with that of the Folio Society who reproduce all the colour plates and black and white illustrations far more finely (and in a far more beautiful binding with protective slipcase), you'll see a huge difference.
