---------- About the style="text-align: center;">
The Brothers Grimm, Jakob (1785-1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786-1859)were born in Hanau near Frankfurt in Hessen. They were among a family of nine children, only six of whom survived infancy. They were German academics who were best known for publishing collections of folk and fairy tales and for their work in linguistics, relating to how the sounds in words shift over time (Grimm's Law). They are among the best known story tellers of novellas from Europe, allowing the widespread knowledge of such tales as Rumpelstiltskin, Snow White,Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, Cinderella, and Hansel and Gretel.
Arthur Rackham (1867 â€“ 1939) was a prolific English book illustrator. He was born in London as one of 12 children. At the age of 18, he worked as a clerk at the Westminster Fire Office and began studying at the Lambeth School of Art. In 1892, he quit his job and started working for The Westminster Budget as a reporter and illustrator. His works were included in numerous exhibitions, including one at the Louvre in Paris in 1914. While he may be best known for his elaborate illustrations of children's literature and fairy tales, he also illustrated books for adult readers, including A Midsummer Night's Dream (1908) and Undine.
