This British Library edition of Mervyn Peake's illustrated Household Tales by the Brothers Grimm is based on the original edition published in 1946. Combining the comic and the sinister, Peake's drawings are a perfect match for stories such as The Nose-Tree, Snow-White and the Seven Dwarfs and Rumpelstiltskin. Altogether there are 75 tales in this anthology, with an introduction by Sarah Waters and reproductions of the original colour illustrations.
