Please note: This is not a book for young children. The Grimms’ tales have violent scenes, and one of the contemporary artworks contains adult language.


We are presenting a new spin on 25 Grimms’ fairy tales by inviting contemporary visual artists to reimagine an eclectic mix of Grimms’ stories. Artists are presenting fresh and exciting 2d, 3d, and time-based pieces to accompany a new translation by Yumiko Blackwell tweaking Margaret Hunt’s classic rendition of the tales. Additionally, we are remixing over 1000 vintage Grimms’ illustrations throughout the stories to flesh out the texts of each tale.

Most of the production costs for the first edition have been successfully funded through Kickstarter, but your purchases through the Mirror Mirrored Shop will help us reach the finish line. Until we go to press (soon!), U.S. residents can still preorder a hand-numbered, limited, first-edition copy of the book here at a special preprinting price.

(Please note your card will be charged immediately at the discounted preorder price. If you would rather wait until the book is printed in 2017 and purchase it at a higher cost, please check back later.)
