"Once upon a time there lived a woodcutter and his wife..."

This Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone illustration was salvaged from the 1977 book Dean's "A Book of Fairy Tales." It features the sixth and seventh page of the story of Hansel and Gretel, where Hansel is tricking the witch into thinking he is still skinny by using a bone and Gretel must clean the house. The full-page artwork is fine and intricate, with gorgeous, lush detailing that draws you into the story.

The illustration measures 10 3/4" by 8 1/4". The page is clean with slightly rounded corners and minor creasing where it was attached to the the spine. Framed and matted these minor imperfections in the margin would not be seen.

Vintage prints are always the perfect decorating choice for any room in your home or office. The illustration would also be great for use in your collage, mixed media or altered art projects.

The Johnstones were British children's book illustrators best known for their delicate, detailed artwork who made names for themselves after illustrating the classic "The Hundred and One Dalmatians." Their prolific art made them the most widely recognized illustrators of children's books in England, and Dean's Fairy Tales is one of their more popular works.
