Dust jacket has light rubbing at spine and flap folds only and there is a 2" previously tape-repaired closed tear on back panel near spine. Overall quite nice and crisp. Now in a clear archival cover. ~~ Haukur Halldórsson (b. 1937) is an Icelandic artist whose paintings and works in other media work are focused on Nordic mythology and Icelandic folklore, reflecting his interpretations of the gods, elves and other elements of lore. This book contains a selection of well-known tales about trolls, mostly taken from the masterful collection of Jón Árnason, "Íslenskar Ţódsögur og Ćfintýri" (Icelandic Folktales and Legends), but also one tale taken from the folktale collection "Gráskinna" of Gísli Konrádsson, and a few tales composed by Halldórsson himself, written in the vein of Icelandic folklore. His dramatic illustrations, mostly full-page or half-page, depict characters from the stories and include some additional ones not directly related to the tales, and these latter include brief explanatory text. This book is not a storybook for children, as the artwork is both graphic and powerful. An original representation of the troll element in Icelandic folklore. Uncommon. Bookseller Inventory #
