East of the Sun and West of the Moon – Norwegian folklore intricately illustrated by artist Kay Nielsen

[Read the post]

It would have been nice if Nielsen had been treated better in life, Disney wasn’t interested enough to keep him on staff; he died in poverty, after giving the world such marvelous illustrations, distinctive and like no other’s.


East of the Sun, West of the Moon is perhaps my favorite fairytale. Thanks for sharing this.

Have you read Once Upon a Winter’s Night by Dennis McKiernan? It’s, in my opinion, an excellent retelling of this fairytale (and the first in a series of “re-expanded” tales).

I haven’t yet, but might get it from the library.
