Art Deco Fairytales Calendar: Key Nielsen

Art Deco Fairytales 2015 Square 12x12 Flame Tree is available for preorder. Art Deco here means Kay Nielsen. Pronounced "Kigh," Kay Nielsen, for those in the know was an established fairy tale illustrator tapped by Disney for preliminary designs for Sleeping Beauty. Nielsen is one of my favorites, especially his Twelve Dancing Princesses and East of the Sun and West of the Moon illustrations.

This calendar has been produced the last few years and in my experience it sells out quickly and is hard to find through most of the usual sources. So grab it if you want it. And enjoy the pictures for several months before 2015!

East of the Sun and West of the Moon: Old Tales from the North (Calla Editions) and The Twelve Dancing Princesses and Other Fairy Tales (Calla Editions) have also been reprinted by Calla and are fine editions of Nielsen's work for an affordable price. I've gotten to handle original editions that are a little finer, but they sell for thousands of dollars, so these are an affordable substitute.
