Product Description

Review

"The Complete Fairy Tales: It is hardly too much to say that these tales rank next to the Bible in importance" (W. H. Auden)

"The Complete Fairy Tales: The Brother's Grimm were responsible for these fairytales that informed my life and made it as interesting, or as confused, or as wondrous as it is...they scared the shit out of me when I was a kid and they also gave me some of the most pleasure in life" (Terry Gilliam)

"The Complete Fairy Tales: The stories, and the figures themselves, have immense vitality, partly because no punches are pulled, and also because no emotion is unrepresented" (Margaret Atwood)

"The Bloody Chamber: Magnificent set pieces of fastidious sensuality" (Ian McEwan)

"The Bloody Chamber: Angela Carter has extended the life and richness of the fable form itself partly through language that is both pellucid and sensual, but chiefly through imagination of such Ariel reach that she can glide from ancient to modern, from darkness to luminosity, from depravity to comedy without any hint of strain and without losing the elusive power of the original tales" (The Times)

Book Description

There are ten Vintage Classics Twins to collect. Each twin consists of two books: a specially designed limited edition of one modern classic title and one established classic work. The books in each pair have been carefully selected to provide a thought-provoking combination
