        I PUT A SPELL ON YOU

    Don´t we all love fairy tales, divine princesses, wicked witches, handsome heroes and happy endings? Then this latest edition of TASCHEN’s centenary reproduction of East of the Sun and West of the Moon is just right for you.

    East of the Sun and West of the Moon revives a classic collection of 15 Norse folktales illustrated by the beloved Danish artist Kay Nielsen, one of the most famous children’s book illustrators of all time. Based on a precious first edition and including 11 of his extremely rare watercolor originals, the book features an all-new design refreshed for today’s readers, numerous full-page illustrations, and double-spreads. A jewel of early 20th-century children’s literature and a wonderful piece to add to your collection of fairy tale books.
