An in-depth review of the Folio Society’s ‘classic’ fairy tale books, which are mostly facsimiles of original editions featuring Golden Age illustrators such as Arthur Rackham, Kay Nielsen, Edmund Dulac and Edward Detmold.

Books featured in the video are:

► Hans Andersen’s Fairy Tales – Heath Robinson:

► Grimm’s Fairy Tales – Arthur Rackham:

► Perrault’s Fairy Tales – Edmund Dulac (OOP):

► East of the Sun, West of the Moon – Kay Nielsen (OOP):
(Or the Taschen is a lovely alternative:

► Aesop’s Fables – Edward Detmold (OOP):

► Arabian Nights – Edward Detmold (OOP):

► A Wonder Book – Walter Crane (OOP):

► Tanglewood Tales – Edmund Dulac (OOP):

► Tales from Shakespeare – various artists (OOP):

► A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Heath Robinson (OOP):

► Adventures of Robin Hood – John Holder (OOP):

Most of these are out of print, but there are a couple still available (along with a vast selection of other lovely books) at the Folio Society website:

A lovely alternative for the out-of-print FS edition of Kay Nielsen’s East of the Sun, West of the Moon is the Taschen edition – I highly recommend it – links below (UPDATE: I made a comparison video of the two different editions, available here:

► Book Depository (UK and rest of world):

► Amazon (US):

*This video is not a paid promotion, it’s a labour of love 🙂 However, the Book Depository and Amazon links above are affiliate links, so apparently I will get a few cents if you purchase from them without costing you money. (I haven’t yet, but one can always hope….)

Was JRR Tolkien correct when he said that Christianity is the “true myth”? Does the word “myth” imply lies or falsity? Dr Taylor Marshall and Fr Dwight Longenecker discuss the vocation of the story teller and the art of story telling in light of JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Evelyn Waugh, Graham Green, Flannery O’Conner, and others. Find Fr Longenecker’s “True Fairy Tales” series on iTunes or at

Each of the nine watercolours depicts a different scene.

The nature of the paper is such that there can be no preparatory drawing and no alterations”.

About: The Gingerbread Man (also known as The Gingerbread Boy or The Gingerbread Runner) is a fairy tale about a gingerbread man’s escape from various pursuers and his eventual demise between the jaws of a fox. *wikipedia*

The Story:

Once upon a time, an old woman and her husband lived alone in a little old house. The couple had no children, and being lonely, the woman decided to make a boy of gingerbread. She carefully mixed the batter, rolled out the dough, and cut out out a very nice gingerbread man. She added sugar icing for his hair, mouth, and clothes, and she used candy chips for buttons and eyes. What a fine looking gingerbread man he was! The old woman put him in the oven to bake. After he was fully done, she slowly opened the oven door. Up jumped the gingerbread man, and he ran out the door saying,”Run, run, as fast as you can! You can’t catch me! I’m the Gingerbread Man!”
The old woman and the old man ran after him, but they could not catch him.
