Cinderella (2009)

A project created for Thornwillow Press, to be sold at Gumps, San Francisco for the holidays 2009. I modeled the line drawings closely on those in Walter Crane’s Shilling Picture Books, which are some of the most beautiful fairy tale books ever created for children. They contain strong, simple outlines with few crosshatchings and strong flat color under the line. This Thornwillow edition was printed beautifully in colored line.

The pictures were intended to reflect Crane’s style of connected pictures as well as his line. A brief explanation of how this works can be found in the captions to the images in the Cinderella gallery.
