 Synopsis  Information
This sumptuous volume is a welcome follow-up to the earlier Calla publication of Dulac's Stories from Hans Christian Andersen. Edmund Dulac was second only to Arthur Rackham in his sensitivity to the world of fairy tales, and his style is at once exotic and elegant. The present edition contains four tales: "The Sleeping Beauty," "Blue Beard," "Cinderella," and "Beauty and the Beast" in artful retelling, but the main feature of the book is the generous offering of 30 full-page colour plates in Dulac's inimitable style. Additional design elements make this Calla edition a keepsake for readers and collectors alike. A Calla Edition, originally published by Hodder & Stoughton, London, 1910.
