Early in his career, Oscar Wilde produced two books of fairy tales -- The Happy Prince and Other Tales and A House of Pomegranates. They're rarely collected in one volume, and never with the stunning artwork of Yuko Shimizu (The Unwritten, Barbed Wire Baseball), one of the most celebrated and admired editorial illustrators in the world. As Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Cunningham writes in his introduction to the volume, this collaboration is "a meeting of such extraordinary talents the book itself emanates the minute traces of a pulse." 12" x 9", 172 pages.
