A Robin Jacques illustration and some eclectic #FridayReads

Happy Friday! Shown above is Robin Jacques' dust jacket illustration for "A Choice of Magic," a 1971 anthology of folk and fairy tales by Ruth Manning-Sanders. The book is a collection of tales pulled from the "A Book of..." volumes published by Manning-Sanders up to that date, and serves as an excellent introduction to her work. And it's a great value, too, as it contains 32 stories.

It's really a marvelous illustration. You should click on it for a bigger view, so that you can admire all of great detail in Jacques' work.
