9781446533338: Perrault's Fairy Tales - Illustrated by Honor C. Appleton

Perrault’s Fairy Tales is a wonderful collection of some true classics of children’s literature. Perrault (1628 – 1703) was among the first writers to bring magical children’s stories into the literary mainstream, proving to his original seventeenth century readers that such works were important, enjoyable, as well as thought-provoking. They remain as popular today, as they were then. He is responsible for such famous works as ‘Cinderella’, ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, ‘Sleeping Beauty’, and ‘Puss in Boots’.

These timeless tales are accompanied by the dazzling illustrations of a master of the trade; Honor C. Appleton (1879 – 1951). Appleton illustrated over one-hundred-and-fifty books during the course of her career, with her most famous works including Our Nursery Rhyme Book (1912), Charles Perrault’s Fairy Tales (1919), and the collected stories of Hans Christian Andersen (1922). As her career progressed, she began producing bolder images for literary classics – but her best-loved drawings remain those for the children’s market. Presented alongside the text, Appleton’s enchanting creations serve to further refine and enhance Perrault’s magical storytelling

Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s classics and fairy tales – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage Golden Age illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.
