Illustrated Fairy Tales from One Thousand and One Nights

Building further upon the success of our editions of illustrated fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen, we have now asked talented young illustrators to visually update exotic stories from 1001 Nights. The popular combination of the traditional texts with these contemporary images gives all fairy tale fans the opportunity to rediscover these narratives anew.

This book contains sixteen stories from 1001 Nights, including the familiar adventures of Sinbad the Sailor and Aladdin and his Lamp as well as less familiar tales of the Enchanted Prince or the Three Apples. Because a different designer has illustrated each story, the book includes a delightful variety of styles. The diverse backgrounds of the contributing illustrators have resulted in a multifaceted world of imagery that draws its allure and freshness from the mixture of Eastern and Western approaches.

Like its predecessors, 1,001 Nights features at least one image on each two-page spread.

Contributing Artists: Catalina Estrada Uribe, Cecilia Carlstedt, Dr. Alderete & El Valiente, Ella Tjader, Jens Harder, Jules Langran, Julia Pfaller, Katharina Leuzinger, Kate Sutton, Lee Misenheimer, Container, Mads Berg, Matthias Gephard, Pipa, Simone Legno, Sophie Tolouse.
