Fairytale Festive Season

How are you all coping with the lead up to Christmas? I hope all your shopping, wrapping, cooking, socializing and reflecting on the year is going well. I have a visual delight for you today so I hope you have some time to relax and behold these beautiful illustrations from Scandinavia. They are illustrations by the Danish artist Kay Nielsen for a book of Norwegian fairy tales published in 1914 called East of the Sun, West of the Moon.  Enjoy!
