‘The Snow Queen‘ by Hans Christian Andersen will hold fond memories for many of us and with this stylish and fresh version, it will create many more memories for a new era of reader.
Finnish illustrator Sanna Annukka has worked her illustrative magic to create a truly collectable item, beautifully bound in vivid turquoise cloth, with silver foil embellishments.
With limited but alluring palettes on each spread, Annukka has created a contemporary twist on classic, which will be loved by audiences old and new.
Annukka has already reinvented another great Hans Christian Andersen classic fairytale to great acclaim.
Her take on ‘The Fir Tree‘ met rave reviews and quite rightly so. See a short video here..
With clean lines and sympathetic colours, this highly illustrated book provides the perfect narrative to this legendary fairytale.
We are running out of superlatives to describe the beauty of these books. From the tactility of this cloth-bound classic and the glimpses of silver on the cover, I defy anyone not to adore this utterly individual take on a family favourite fairytale.
Either of these books would make a perfect gift and we’ve already identified a number of lucky recipients.
