When Charles Perrault, a civil servant in Paris in the 17th century, heard his son’s nurse recounting old French folk stories, he decided to write his own versions, thereby creating a new genre – the literary fairy tale. His legacy includes some of the most enduringly popular fairy tales – ‘Cinderella’, ‘The Sleeping Beauty’, ‘Blue Beard’ – complemented here by the paintings of Edmund Dulac, one of the greatest artists of the Golden Age of book illustration.
