“Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tales” is a collection of H. C. Andersen’s magnificent stories, retold by Jørgen Haarder and illustrated by a renowned Danish artist Kasper Købke.
Book includes fourteen world famous fairy tales plus a behind-the-scenes journey, including an illustrator profile and a guide to the hidden references throughout the drawings.
Kasper Købke himself estimates that the book contains between 700-1,000 references. For example, if you open the fairy tale “The Nightingale”, you will find a portrait of the Swedish singer Jenny Lind incorporated in the drawing, left to the reader’s further interpretation.
