East of The Sun and West of The Moon - Book Club
My second pick for Book Club is "East of the Sun and West of the Moon", illustrated by Kay Nielsen, designed by Andy Disl, and edited by Noel Daniel. An artist friend posted some snaps of his work from a museum show a bit ago and I fell in love with Nielsen's work. After some investigating I picked up this treasure, a book of old Norwegian folktales. It gives a great history to start, laying some context for your adventure into the tales. The images are mystical, dark, full of soft colors, delicate line and imagination. As an object, its beautiful.
