Item description for 1001 Nights: Illustrated Fairy Tales from One Thousand And One Nights by Robert Klanten...

Building further upon the success of our editions of illustrated fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen, we have now asked talented young illustrators to visually update exotic stories from 1001 Nights. The popular combination of the traditional texts with these contemporary images gives all fairy tale fans the opportunity to rediscover these narratives anew.

This book contains eight stories from 1001 Nights, including the familiar adventures of Sinbad the Sailor and Aladdin and his Lamp as well as less familiar tales of the Enchanted Prince or the Three Apples. Because a different designer has illustrated each story, the book includes a delightful variety of styles. The diverse backgrounds of the contributing illustrators have resulted in a multifaceted world of imagery that draws its allure and freshness from the mixture of Eastern and Western approaches.

Like its predecessors, 1001 Nights features at least one image on each two-page spread; but unlike those in Grimm and Andersen, these rich illustrations -- some of which are erotic or violent -- are more suited for viewing by adults.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about 1001 Nights: Illustrated Fairy Tales from One Thousand And One Nights?

Arabian classic tales imaginatively illustrated by different artists  Dec 3, 2005
Magical, foreign tales from the Arabian Nights inspire 16 mostly European artists to create fanciful illustrations, many evidencing influences from Persian art and manuscript illumination. The varied styles of the number of artists range from brightly-colored and cartoon-like with their rounded, cherub-like figures to dark, muted tones with clipped figures drawing one into the complexities and ambiguities of the respective tale; from brightly-colored illustrations which seem to dance on the page to ones which seem ominous signs to what lies within. Not only the artistic content makes this a small version of a coffee-table, gift book. So does the color-illustrated cover with the lettering of the title and subtitle embossed with silver. And there's the silk place marker, too.
