Taschen’s The Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen

LBarrettHCA-SnowQueen

I’m proud to have around fifty illustrations featured in Taschen’s brand new children’s book, The Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen, edited by Noel Daniel and published this month. I created silhouettes of various sizes for the book, for classic tales such as The Little Match Girl and The Snow Queen and also designed some hand decorated ‘pea tendril lettering and the endpapers. My work sits side by side artwork by some of my illustration idols, including Arthur Rackham, Harry Clarke, Kay Nielsen and Lotte Reiniger to name but a few! The book is my second working with Taschen, following 2011’s The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm.
