As many of you already know, I have a deep fondness for classic fairytales. That fondness extends to their illustrations as well. The bold pen and ink drawings, the intricate block prints, for me, they are part of what makes those classic tales so compelling.
When I saw fellow author and artist Anne Nydam’s block prints, I fell in love with them! Here are two she made for my retelling of Howard Pyle’s The Swan Maiden. Take a moment to check out her post about them on her blog Black and White. Or, for more wonderful art (of which I own a few) go to Nydamprints.com.
