Description

Flamboyant man-about-town, Oscar Wilde had a reputation that preceded him, especially in his early career. Known primarily for his plays and his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray , it sometimes comes as a surprise to people that he wrote fairy tales.  These fairy tales are some of  his most elegant and charming pieces of writing. He produced two books -- The Happy Prince and Other Tales and A House of Pomegranates . They've rarely been collected in one volume -- and never with stunning artwork by Yuko Shimizu, one of the modern masters of illustration and graphic art. Wilde's original fairy tales are moving, sweet, sad and  magical -- much like Yuko's artwork.
