The Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen Fairytales

Hello! Last year I illustrated five borders each for two books by Miles Kelly on 'Grimm's Fairytales' and 'Hans Christian Andersen Fairytales'. They are now published and in the shops! Each border framed a heading in each of the books and also ran through the books framing all of the different fairytales by both The Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen. I used acrylic on all of the borders.

Below are the borders for 'The Brothers Grimm' Fairytales along with a portrait of The Brothers Grimm which I also illustrated.

 Below are the remaining three illustrated borders for The Brothers Grimm book.

 

Below are the borders for 'Hans Christian Andersen' Fairytales along with a portrait of Hans Christian Andersen.
