Jorinde & Joringel: Rilla Alexander's illustrations for the Grimm fairy tale Jorinde & Joringel"This pocket sized book tells the Grimm Brothers tale of Jorinde who is transformed into a bird by an evil witch. She is trapped in a cage in the witch's castle – alongside seven thousand other birds who used to be girls. Joringel dreams of a magical red flower which will dissolve the spell and embarks on a quest to save Jorinde."
Yes, we're already steaming headway into the middle of the year, but I'm making good on my new year's resolution – sharing some of my projects which, for one reason or another, have not been produced. Until now. First up is an edition of the Grimm Brothers Fairy Tale Jorinde & Joringel.
I illustrated this story before Her Idea and it convinced me I could finally tell my own story. So it's certainly high time you had the chance to see it. After all, Jorinde & Joringel is a little known tale outside of Germany – and keeping it in my drawer is not helping the cause!
2013 is looking up if Rilla is going to be making more books!
