DAY 14 – FAVORITE FAIRY TALE
It was tricky trying to think of my favorite fairy tale, mostly because shows like Once Upon A Time have taken them all and squeezed all the life out of them. Still, I recall as a child having a picture book of Rumpelstiltskin that fascinated me. What’s not to love about a tricky trickster who could turn straw into gold? Also, I recall being intrigued by the artwork. I don’t know who the artist was, but as I recall it was very much in the style of Edward Gorey.
*NOTE. On a whim, I Googled “edward gorey rumpelstiltskin” and, as it turns out, it was him! I found images from the very book I was thinking of and it really brought me back. Another testament to how good art can stick with you throughout the years.
