Doré's illustrations to Perrault's Cinderella are wonderfully gothic. I could gaze on them forever but what of this accompanying moral? 'Beauty is a treasure rare Who complains of being fair?' Les contes de Perrault dessins par Gustave Doré 1867

It has been suggested Snow White was inspired by a Maria Sophia Margaretha Catherina von Erthal. She lived in a castle with her stepmother who had a "talking mirror"... which can still be seen at the Spessart Museum in the Lohr Castle. What would YOU ask?

"Snow-White lay there in the coffin a long, long time, and she did not decay, but looked like she was asleep, for she was still as white as snow and as red as blood, and as black-haired as ebony wood." [Illustration: Heinrich Lefler & Joseph Urban]

Snow White as envisioned by American illustrator Trina Schart Hyman. What’s not to love about an artist who spent a year of her childhood wearing a red cape because Little Red Riding Hood was her favourite

I found this 1931 copy of Russian Wonder Tales. It's a bit tired but the illustrations are still bright and beautiful.

This I want to share my favorite remix of the Snow White tale written by Neil Gaiman: Snow, Glass, Apples. Rather than our heroine, Snow White is a vampire and the evil queen is a witch working to protect the kingdom. Quite brilliant!

“The Twelve Wild Ducks” is as close as you’re going to get to Snow White in Norwegian folklore.

The Brothers Grimm first published Snow White in 1812. Contemporary artist Charles Santore illustrated their story in a 2010 book using a realistic style, while still endowing his images with enchanted touches of fantasy and magic.
