Christian Jackson's Minimalist Fairy Tales

The following are minimalist fairy tale posters by Christian Jackson that are available for purchase. I love them. I think Princess and the Pea and Ugly Duckling are my favorites, but the subtlety of some of them, such as Goldilocks, warm me. There are others on his site, but I chose to stick with the traditional fairy tales here.


  1. Those are awesome! I think Hansel and Gretel might be my favorite, but they're all fantastic.

  2. Lovely posters - so laconic and wearing the unique essence of each fairytale! Thank you very much for sharing, Heidi! In my work as a puppet theatre director posters have an important role in advertising the performance... I like "The Three Little Pigs" (it's my next project and I'm finishing the dramatization these days), "The Wizard of Oz", "Alice in Wonderland", but my favourite is "The Ugly Duckling"!! I have put it on stage, as well as "Mary Poppins", "Hansel and Gretel" and "Rapunzel". Here you can see our poster -
    It has more details in order to keep fresh the children's emotions long after the show. :)
