Beautiful Book!

PostedDecember 26, 2011
"I bought this book as a Christmas gift for my 14 year old granddaughter. When it arrived, I was so drawn to it because of it's wonderful artwork that I put off wrapping it. I wanted to look at and read it for as long as I could! It had very interesting background information about the Grimms brothers, and the fairy tales are the same stories they related - not the "cleaned up" versions. And the important thing is that my granddaughter loved it, too!
I recommend this book to anyone who has an appreciation for folk tales and beautiful presentation. This is a book that deserves to be treasured and cared for. It is not for young children, though. Some of the stories may be too scary for them."

Beautiful images and kid friendly

PostedFebruary 29, 2012
"I love the Grimm fairytales, and these are the real ones. I also can't pass up looking at a Taschen book - the quality is unmatched. This book does not disappoint. The pages are nice and thick so they're kid friendly and will hopefully prevent significant tears. The illustrations are vibrant and large, and the text is large enough for children to read. A great book for any age. The cloth cover and bookmarks are extras that make the book seem even more special. Great price, particularly for a Taschen. I’ve given this book as a gift to two different people, and I’ve now bought one for our family."

"This is such a fantastic coffee table book. The illustrations are so detailed and brightly colored. Like the previous reviewer said, this is NOT the cleaned up versions we have grown so use to - they are the closest to the originals I have seen. Greatly recommended for any book lover!"

Favorite book!

"I bought this for me & my daughter to read together and it is a favorite in our home. The illustrations and quality are amazing. Such a treat to own! I purchased the Hans Christian Andersen edition too and love it just as much! I'm so glad Anthro offered these treasures!"

Gorgeous Book

PostedFebruary 23, 2013
"My 16 year old nephew wanted a collection of the Brothers Grimm Fairy tales. I had planned on purchasing the Barnes and Noble hardcover version which I thought was beautiful. However, while checking out at an Anthropologie, I noticed this version and immediately purchased it. It is an absolutely gorgeous book with vibrant images of an amazing collection of vintage illustrations. The book also contains cool silhouettes taken from original publications of these stories. Overall, a gorgeous book that I enjoyed giving as a gift and will likely pick up for our own family library. Highly recommend!"

A jaw-droppingly beautiful book

PostedDecember 29, 2012
"Talk about a family heirloom! This book will be treasured by your family for years to come! The colors are rich, and the illustrations are gorgeous! However, this book is definitely not for kids who still rip pages---best to buy this for an older child who won't tear it, or keep it on the top shelf. ~.^"
