Snow White by the Brothers Grimm, illustrated by Camille Rose Garcia

Book 4/75


Snow White Snow White by Jacob Grimm
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I'm fairly certain everyone is familiar with the story of Snow White, so I'm not going to go into details about the story. What I am going to tell you, though, is you should go pick up this edition of Snow White! Right now!!

Camille Rose Garcia's art is so visually striking and unique, and the typographic design of the book really works with her art style to create something rather beautiful. I was first introduced to her style when I picked up the edition of Lewis Carrol's Alice in Wonderland that she illustrated a couple of years ago, and fell in love with her work then. I was thrilled when I found this new volume of Snow White at my local bookstore the other day, and am really hoping that she continues this partnership with HarperDesign and continues to illustrate more classic fairy tales. One book I'd particularly like to see in her vision is The Wizard of Oz. I'd be willing to bet she could create a truly stunning version of Oz and its inhabitants.
