9780091944339: The Fir Tree

A stunning illustrated edition of Hans Christian Andersen's classic story, The Fir Tree.

Hans Christian Andersen's tragic tale of naive greed and dissatisfaction is retold through the beautiful and intricate illustrations of Finnish illustrator Sanna Annukka. Cloth-bound in rich forest green, with gold foil embellishments, The Fir Tree is a unique work of art.

Sanna Annukka is familiar to many from her collaborations with Marimekko and her artwork for Keane's album, Under the Iron Sea. For her first book project, she illustrates Hans Christian Andersen's classic fairy tale, The Fir Tree. A beautiful gift to give and receive.

About the Author:

SANNA ANNUKKA is a half Finnish, half English illustrator and print maker. She spent many childhood summers in Finland, and the forests, lakes and wildlife of the region remain a constant source of inspiration. Her work combines nature, childhood memories and her love of storytelling and folklore. In 2006, Sanna's work was spotted by British band Keane which led to a collaboration on their second million selling album Under the Iron Sea. Her client list includes Universal Island Records, British Vogue, Apple/iTunes and Marimekko. Alongside commissioned work Sanna has her own company, developing her own brand of self-styled products. She is currently expanding her product range from limited edition prints on paper to printed textiles, wooden products and jewellery. The Fir Tree is her first book.

HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN was born in Odense, in 1805. The son of a cobbler and a washerwoman, he didn't start school until he was seventeen. He became famous for his fairy tales, including classics such as The Ugly Duckling and The Snow Queen. The Fir Tree was published in 1845. When he died aged 70, the king and crown Prince of Denmark attended his funeral.
