WELCOME TO THE MIRROR MIRRORED PROJECT

“A great accomplishment.”

—JACK ZIPES

Stories still matter. 25 Grimms’ tales as you’ve never seen them before in one timely, limited-edition art book.

Grimms’ fairy tales, originally collected in 1812, are a timeless chronicle of the possibilities our lives all have, and the full range of human nature. The stories remain just as relevant today as when they were first published over 200 years ago. To introduce these tales to a new generation, we are presenting a special visual edition of 25 of the stories. We have not only researched vintage Grimms’ illustrations and remixed almost 2000 of these images into the book, but we also invited 28 contemporary artists to visually reimagine the stories. We now present these artworks alongside the full text of the 25 original tales, in the first book of a new series called “Mirror Mirrored.”
