I grew up in the late 60's looking at this book in my school library. I so loved the images! Thank you for posting them. I have thought of them many times through the years.
These are beautiful! The Little Mermaid is my favourite fairy tale - I can't believe I never knew about these illustrations before. My other favourite illustration of the story is by Christian Birmingham.
wonderful, thank you for sharing!
has this story with these illustrations ever been found in a collection of fairy tales with dark endings? I had a thick book as a child with almost all fairy tales with similar illustrations but no long have it and am unable to find it online.
Unfortunately I can't help...I only know of these illustrations through the blog I cited in the post. The author of The Art of Narrative may know?
