About this Item: Read Books, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Kay Nielsen (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. A collection of Hans Christian Andersen s best loved fairy tales is here illustrated with the magnificent Art Nouveau colour illustrations of Kay Nielsen. This was a project that took Nielsen 12 years to complete, and his illustrations perfectly capture the other-worldly spirit of the subject matter. Many of the earliest children s books, particularly those dating back to the 1850s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Pook Press are working to republish these classic works in affordable, high quality, colour editions, using the original text and artwork so these works can delight another generation of children. About the Author: Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was a Danish poet and author celebrated for his children s stories but perhaps best known for his immortal Fairy Tales meant for both adults and children and frequently written in a colloquial style to veil their sophisticated moral teachings. He broke new ground in terms of style and content by using idioms and constructions of spoken language in a way that had previously not been seen in Danish literature. His poetry and stories have been translated into over 150 languages, inspiring a wealth of films, plays and ballets. About the Illustrator: Kay Nielsen (1886-1957) was a Danish illustrator of the golden age of illustration. He was influenced by Japanese art and the Swedish fairy tale illustrator John Bauer and contributed to the Art Nouveau movement. His illustrations are bold, and vibrant - often reproduced by a 4-colour process which set him apart from his contemporaries who typically used a 3-colour process. His art is characterised by long, swooping lines, open spaces and a certain macabre quality and his ephemeral illustrations are intricately inventive, flirting with implausibility. The shift in taste from fantasy to realism after WWII meant that Nielsen did not retain his pre-war popularity. However, interest in his exquisite illustrations has since been revived, and they now command a high price in today s art world. Seller Inventory # AAV9781446500132

Hodder & Stoughton resumed publishing gift books w/illustrious artistic design, decoration and fine bindings in effort to resume this genre following World War I. Considered one of Hodder & Stoughton's very best designs from the Golden Age of Illustration, and in the most rare and desirable oversize form. Kay Rasmus Nielsen is regarded, with Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac, as a master of gift book illustration. He was born in Copenhagen of distinguished theatrical parents in 1886. In 1904, after considering a medical career, he left for Paris to pursue his passion for art, studying under J. P. Laurens at the Académie Julian. His greatest influences as a student were the Japanese woodcuts of Hokusai and Utamaro, and the black and white decorative line work of Aubrey Beardsley. He was lured from the profession of book illustration by Walt Disney, for whom he became an animator in 1939. Nielsen remained in Hollywood working as an actor, director, designer and muralist until passing in 1957. Printed in the USA w/color plates printed in Japan by Dai Nippon Printing, Co., Tokyo. 155 pages. Insured post. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Book. Seller Inventory # 017770

Pook Press are working to republish these classic works in affordable, high quality, colour editions, using the original text and artwork so these works can delight another generation of children. About the Author: Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was a Danish poet and author celebrated for his children s stories but perhaps best known for his immortal Fairy Tales meant for both adults and children and frequently written in a colloquial style to veil their sophisticated moral teachings. He broke new ground in terms of style and content by using idioms and constructions of spoken language in a way that had previously not been seen in Danish literature. His poetry and stories have been translated into over 150 languages, inspiring a wealth of films, plays and ballets. About the Illustrator: Kay Nielsen (1886-1957) was a Danish illustrator of the golden age of illustration. He was influenced by Japanese art and the Swedish fairy tale illustrator John Bauer and contributed to the Art Nouveau movement. His illustrations are bold, and vibrant - often reproduced by a 4-colour process which set him apart from his contemporaries who typically used a 3-colour process. His art is characterised by long, swooping lines, open spaces and a certain macabre quality and his ephemeral illustrations are intricately inventive, flirting with implausibility. The shift in taste from fantasy to realism after WWII meant that Nielsen did not retain his pre-war popularity. However, interest in his exquisite illustrations has since been revived, and they now command a high price in today s art world. Seller Inventory # LIE9781446500279

About this Item: London Hodder and Stoughton, 1924. Edition de Luxe, with Twelve Mounted Color Plates [NIELSEN, Kay, illustrator]. ANDERSEN, Hans [Christian]. Fairy Tales. Illustrated by Kay Nielsen. London: Hodder and Stoughton, [n.d., 1924]. Edition de Luxe. Limited to 500 numbered copies, this copy bound without signed limitation page. Large quarto (12 x 9 3/4 inches; 305 x 250 mm). [3]-197, [3, blank] pp. Twelve mounted color plates, with descriptive tissue guards. Numerous black and white text illustrations (seventeen full-page) and decorative borders and initials. In later binding. Full vellum over boards pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt on front cover and spine. Newer endpapers and silk page marker. Occasional light spotting to descriptive tissue guards only. Some toning to mounting pages, but illustrations are clean and bright. A beautiful copy. Nielsen had completed these drawings in 1912. Hodder and Stoughton, however, published another edition of Hans Andersen in 1913, illustrated by Heath Robinson, which probably explains the late appearance of the Nielsen edition.
