Happy anniversary to the Brothers Grimm...

Today is the 200th anniversary of the first edition of a collection of dark, spooky and downright scary folk tales written by the Grimm brothers.

Far from being suitable for kids at the time, these tales have become some of the most famous children's stories of all time....think Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel and Little Red Riding Hood for starters....
Taschen have published a collection of 27 favourite tales in a gorgeously illustrated book to celebrate this momentous occasion.
