5.0 étoiles sur 5A beautiful edition of English Fairy Tales30 août 2011
Par Z Hayes - Publié sur Amazon.com
I have been collecting the Calla Editions' books since 2009. My first purchase was Tales of Mystery and Imagination (Calla Editions) and I was so impressed with the quality (wonderful illustrations, superior binding, etc.) that I began collecting the Calla books. Each and every book has been a delight, and not only have these books enhanced my home library, they have been a joy to peruse and read over and over again. Each book is illustrated by a well-known illustrator such as Arthur Rackham, Kay Nielsen, Chris Van Allsburg, etc. and the illustrations are the true highlights in each book.
In Calla Editions' English Fairy Tales, the illustrations are by Arthur Rackham, a renowned early 20th century British illustrator (who also provided the illustrations for Calla Editions' Grimm's Fairy Tales). This edition contains many of Rackham's amazing black and white illustrations, including silhouettes. In addition, there are sixteen large color plates. For those who might be interested, here is a listing of the stories included in this edition: St. George of Merrie England The Story of the Three Bears Tom-Tit-Tot The Golden Snuff Box Tattercoats The Three Feathers Lazy Jack Jack the Giant-Killer The Three Sillies The Golden Ball The Two Sisters The Laidly Worm Titty Mouse and Tatty Mouse Jack and the Beanstalk The Black Bull of Norroway Catskin The Three Little Pigs Nix Naught Nothing Mr. and Mrs. Vinegar The True History of Sir Thomas Thumb Henny-Penny The Three Heads of the Well Mr. Fox Dick Whittington and His Cat The Old Woman and Her Pig The Wee Bannock How Jack Went Out to Seek His Fortune The Bogey-Beast Little Red Riding-Hood Childe Rowland The Wise Men of Gotham Caporushes The Babes in the Wood The Red Ettin The Fish and the Ring Lawkamercyme Master of all Masters Molly Whuppie and the Double-Faced Giant The Ass, the Table, and the Stick The Well of the World's End The Rose Tree
These Calla Edition books are heirloom-quality and are a must-have for any collector and fan of well-illustrated, quality books.

I'm really impressed with the quality of this edition. The quality of the hardback is sturdy. The pages are thick. The print is beautiful. The illustrations are excellent. At a time when so many classics compromise on quality for profit, this edition is outstanding. I'm hoping for more English authors like Chesterton, Dickens, William Morris, etc to be published like this. There's a large quantity of low quality editions out there. I would really like an edition of Irish literature and poetry like this one.

I like stories especially well written books that allow one's imagination to seek its own level and involvement in the presented story.
It is always a refreshing time to become immersed without the distraction of movie/cable/TV commercials, inappropriate sexual scenes, crude language and actions supported by annoying colors, disgusting switching between unrelated other themes, loud sounds and noise (?music?) to support extremely poor content, and people reading their lines.
I recommend this book for those who like to use their imagination.
