Simply magnificent! Tan gives small snippets of Grimm's fairy tales, each accompanied by a photograph of an exquisite sculpture. The pairings are dark, stunning, and utterly brilliant. With introductions by Neil Gaiman and Jack Zipes, not to mention lists of additional resources, this is a treasure for any fairy tale fan and is destined to be poured over again and again. A masterpiece!
