Daily Design Inspiration is just that. A daily dose of eye candy to highlight artworks that we find for your viewing pleasure and inspiration. Here are the many illustrations and paintings of the childhood fairy tale by the famed Grimm’s Brothers, Hansel and Gretel.
As we all know, the German fairy tale is not quite wholesome in nature. The tale is about a brother and sister abandoned in the forest, who get lured by a witch into her gingerbread house so she can eat them. So as the story leans toward the grim (no pun intended), so do some of these illustrations.
You can find the Childhood Favorites and Fairy Stories, The Young Folks Treasury, Volume 1 on Project Gutenberg, which includes Hansel and Gretel.
