A collection of 14 twisted, dark retellings of classic fairy tales

This collection of 14 dark tales is a startling and imaginative take on the the fairytale form. Inspired by the tales of Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm, each narrative gently unfolds, reminiscent of ancient, oral story-telling. It is exquisitely illustrated with 14 color plates and 28 black-and-white "woodcut"-style illustrations. The book is beautifully produced, featuring gold motifs on the inside pages, while the full color case has a matte finish combined with spot gloss varnish and a gold foil stamp. The book also includes head-and-tail bands and a ribbon marker. It is an omnibus edition of two previously published works, 7 Dark Tales and 7 Mor Dark Tale
