The Enchanted Forest: Celebrating 200 years of Grimm’s Fairy Tales

The Enchanted Forest
Celebrating 200 years of Grimm’s Fairy Tales

Wednesday 28 November – Saturday 8 December
FREE Exhibition

The first ever collection of Grimm’s fairy tales, entitled “Children’s and Household Tales”, was published in December of 1812, and two hundred years later it is still thrilling children and adults alike. To celebrate two hundred years of enchantment and magic; seven young up and coming illustrators will be interpreting these wonderfully dark and mysterious stories into a very special Christmas exhibition at Foyles. With inspiration taken from both the classics, such as Hansel and Gretel, and the less well-known tales like The Golden Bird; this exhibition is about interpreting and re-discovering a cultural legacy that has been with us for 200 years.

Prepare to be spellbound as you enter The Enchanted Forest.

The Enchanted Forest is grateful to IdeasTap for providing funding through its Ideas Fund for this project.

Moustachiod man every day by Paul Shinn

It's certainly that time of year again where men all over the world are carefully crafting their creations as women despair of their growing face furniture. There are some who can and some who can't, but many will try so here at the rally we salute all the mo bros and mo sisters and one in particular, Illustration Rally regular Paul Shinn who has decided to do something creative for the cause. He will be drawing a different moustachioed man every day for the whole month of November and raise money for Prostate Cancer UK in the process.

So fellow illustrators and tasche growers we salute you! Please check out his appeal and mustachy illustration here:

Please spread the word about his appeal and love for Movember!
