images from grimm's maerchen, 1956

my sister - many years ago - gave me this amazing little book for christmas. i had it out because i was practicing my german, and realized other people might like to see some of the wicked cool pictures.

grimm's fairy tales in the original german, published in the mid 1950's, which she tracked down somewhere i don't even know where.

here are just a few humble snapshots of the gorgeous pen and ink work in this excellent little book.

may we all recieve gifts this awesome, and also give them.
