I've just added most of Elenore Abbott's illustrations for her collection of Grimm's Fairy Tales (1920) to the site and SurLaLune's Cafe Press. Besides beautiful work, Abbott is interesting since she chose mostly "second" and "third" string tales to illustrate instead of the most popular ones, excepting Cinderella, of course. Her Cinderella is truly Aschenputtle with the birds and the tree, a rare find for me. I also loved her Six Swans.
