Never judge a book by the cover

I came across this beautifully illustrated book, now, you know that I like a nice illustration, and with some of the subject matter being “Arabian nights” and stories of Middle Eastern Princesses, I was smitten.

Edmund Dulac illustrated this book to raise funds for the French Red Cross during WWI.

His original paintings of the fairytales sell for thousands.

They are very beautiful and detailed.
