Grimm Brothers Jacob & Wilhelm

"Children's family tales", the first collection of the Brothers Grimm, was released in
the year 1812. Works for this book were based on the tales of the German people.

At that time, the Brothers Grimm tales were read by all; due to this fact, the author gained wide popularity at home in Germany.

The authors seized the idea to collect more pieces of folk art, give them the maturity and charm with the literary treatment. All their lives they worked on their books, many of which have got to our days. In all, the Brothers Grimm published eight editions of their wonderful tales.

Before the advent of the Brothers Grimm fairy art was simple and unsophisticated. Folk Art in the tales retelling of the Brothers Grimm began to play with bright colors, taking the best of folk and enriching it with new meaning and characters.
