Winston’s cover Grimm for a grim day

image

The same day I got the Gunter Grass Proof I saw this in the same store he had everything half price so this early seventies selection of Grimm stories selected by Lore Segal and Maurice Sendak and Translated By Lore And illustrated by Maurice, of course sendak is best known for his book where the wild things are . His illustrations here are so in keeping with the Grimm tales.

As you see with this one for The fisherman and his wife, which of course formed the kernel of the idea for the Gunter Grass novel the Flounder I reviewed last month on the blog.

    I wish I’d seen this yesterday, I just ordered books for my grandnieces and the older one would have loved these Sendaks.
    Why is it a grim day? Bad weather?
