Description

This stunningly illustrated selection of tales from the classic Arabian Nights features silhouette and color art by noted children's book illustrator Jan Pienkowski. Retold by David Walser, these interpretations charm the contemporary reader with flourishes of whimsy and insouciance that complement Pienkowski's exquisite compositions of silhouettes laced with brilliant color and metallic silver ornamentation. The tales include "Shahrazade: The First Night," "The Tale of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves," "The Tale of Aladdin's Lamp," "The Tale of the Birds, the Beasts and the Carpenter," "The Tale of Sinbad the Sailor," "The Tale of the Fox and the Cock," "The Tale of the Fisherman and the Genie," and "Shahrazade: The Last Night." This Calla Edition is the first publication of this work for the American market. Available for sale in the United States only.show more
