Hop-o'-My-Thumb - Illustrations

A few odd illustrations now. They're from the end of the 19th century, from a collection of fairy tales titled Mein erstes Märchenbuch. They illustrate a tale, first written in the late 17th century by the French author Charles Perrault. The tale is titled Hop-o'-My-Thumb and is about a small boy who defeats an ogre.

I find both the images slightly disturbing - especially the first one.

  1. Being a vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, but how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email:
