Few contemporary artists are able to bring to life the timeless enchantment of traditional children's stories and fairy tales as delightfully or successfully as does Scott Gustafson.

A two time winner of the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists' Chesley Award, Gustafson has over the last three decades become a favorite of both children and their parents thanks to the elegantly styled and luxuriantly detailed paintings in his best-selling picture books.

Now Easton Press presents this acclaimed artist's latest illustrated collection of classic children's tales: Storybook Fables, a special Easton Press leather-bound Keepsake Edition, personally signed by the award-winning artist, Scott Gustafson.

Eight classic fables retold and newly illustrated.

Inspired by Rembrandt and such great 'Golden Age' illustrators as N.C. Wyeth and Arthur Rackham, Scott Gustafson revels in deploying his meticulous 'old master' command of color, composition, settings, costume, and character to retell and re-imagine the great traditional tales.

Gustafson spent two years on Storybook Fables creating forty-eight gorgeous full-color paintings to illustrate his own versions of eight beloved fables, among them Beauty and the Beast, The Crow and the Pitcher, The Emperor's New Clothes, and The Mice in Council.

The signed Easton Press Keepsake Edition Storybook Fables reproduces Gustafson's sumptuous and enchanting paintings in a dramatic oversized format – and some over a panoramic two full pages.

“Lush paintings appear throughout, and Gustafson subtly tailors his images to the mood of each story,” declares Publishers Weekly of Storybook Fables. “Readers will be entranced by the striking attention to detail in the artwork accompanying these stories of love, cleverness, and just deserts.”
