Grimms’ fairy tales, originally collected in 1812, are a timeless chronicle of not only human nature, but the possibilities our lives all have. The stories remain just as relevant today as when they were first published over 200 years ago. To introduce them to a new generation, we are presenting a special visual edition of 25 of the tales. Looking back, we have compiled a treasury of vintage Grimms’ illustrations and collaged them throughout the book, and—looking forward—we have invited 28 contemporary artists to add to this rich artistic tradition. We now present these contemporary artworks alongside the vintage illustrations and full text of the 25 original tales, in a new book: Mirror Mirrored.
Collected by Harvard University, the Goethe House Museum, Rhode Island School of Design, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Savannah College of Art and Design, the Roswell Artist in Residence Program, Wesleyan, and others.
