  Beauty and the Beast
art & books

We've always loved the variety of artistic interpretations of the wonderful old familiar tales.
We like all these illustrations but we're particularly fond of the quotation on the Gerstein print:
So long as you live, resist judging others by their outward appearance.

So long as you live, avoid judging others by their outward appearance.

If you are a fan of unusual artwork full of surreal and whimisical florishes, then this may very well be the book for you. The art is beautiful and full of inventive whimsy, but it is not traditional.
