Deans Gold Star Book of Fairy Tales


The stories in this 1973 Deans Fairytale book are Hans Christian Andersen with illustrations by the iconic illustrator twins; Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone. The cover and liner pages of this book are amazing but the inside illustrations are a bit sparse, I have other better versions of the Grahame Johnstone twins work in boxes which I shall fish out and show to you! But isn't that musky pink cover wonderful?

  1. oh I love those symmetrical cut outs, when I was in Denmark in 2006 it was H.C. Andersens 100th birthday, these were everywhere! and I went to see he house, it's only very small and the door frame is wonky.
