I love to acquire, hoard, stack, shelve, smell, read and share books. I review books. I stare at books. You get it, right?

Snow White

Snow White - Camille Rose Garcia, Jacob Grimm

I hadn't read the Brothers Grimm version of Snow White until today. I enjoyed it albeit being very different from the Disney version. However, what makes this book exquisite are the illustrations by Camille Rose Garcia. They are beyond words, in my opinion. The dust jacket as well as the outside of the book are magnificently done. Simply, this is one beautiful book, a feast for the eyes. I am very pleased to own it.
