Little Brother & Little Sister and Other Tales by the Brothers Grimm
Translated from the German by Margaret Raine Hunt (1831–1912)
Illustrated by Arthur Rackham (1867–1939)

A collection of 40 tales taken from German folklore, immortalized by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. These stories remain perennially popular, still enjoyed, two centuries after their first publication, by readers young and old. The stories presented in this volume have been charmingly illustrated by the incomparable Arthur Rackham, with 17 full-page color plates, 40 line drawings, and a number of chapter decorations.

Companion volumes available:
Hansel & Grethel and Other Tales


Snowdrop and Other Tales

Embedded font for titling. “List of Stories and Illustrations” provides links to story titles and to images.

So glad to greet a fellow fan. I have been working through many of the books illustrated by Rackham, and enjoying it very much. More coming down the pipeline if I can find usable images!

I appreciate these too! The little "Mobileread edition" is cute. Did you create the covers yourself using interior illustrations? Or are these based on actual physical book scans?

Why, thank you! I am so glad you are enjoying the books.

The covers for "Hansel" and for "Little Brother" are adapted from actual scans of covers with the "gilt" vignette. I couldn't get the scan colors to look presentable, so converted to silhouette.

Somewhere there is a Snowdrop cover with a gilt vignette of the girl and the evil stepmother in the same style, but I only found a bad bad 400px wide smashed and smeary jpeg. So the "Snowdrop" cover is a mashup of interior chapter head, titlepage, and Little Brother cover.
