    Hi Everyone,

    I love the twilit realms of Folk and Fairy Tales (bet there are a few people on these forums that do too;)).

    Here are some of my favourite illustrations, by Swedish artist John Bauer....

    Once upon a time a young prince went riding out into the moonlight

    And she held up a key, a fine key made of pure gold

    These are gorgeous, WildStrawberry! Thank you for sharing. Are they illustrations from books? They each look like they're from particular fairy tales.

    Hi Charis :)

    I know, they are really stunning aren't they, make you shake your head in amazement (wow)....

    If you search: "Swedish Folk Tales" & "Swedish Fairy Tales" and/or books illustrated by John Bauer - you'll find more gorgeous illustrations. Trolls, Elves,Magicians ..... Deep Dark Forests................. everything you could wish for from a Folk / Fairy Tale.
