New Additions To My Collection . . .

I recently found these fairy tale books in my favorite used bookstore, so of course I had to bring them home with me!  Aren't they lovely?  Reconnecting with the old stories is always delightful, they have such a simple, nostalgic beauty to them. 

And these books have such gorgeous illustrations.  The one in the picture on top is by Arthur Rackham, one of my favorite artists.

  2. It's a pleasure to meet you, its always wonderful to find others who enjoy myths, folktales and art as much as I do.
