By Ruth Sanderson

A compilation of the highlights over the course of my career. Over 250 illustrations, some never before published, as well as notes, preliminary sketches and photo references.


"In this book you will find sumptuous paintings and spectacular renderings not just of magical worlds, but of magical light falling on them."–Paul Zelinsky, winner of the Caldecott Award for RAPUNZEL "Ruth's art opens a door into a golden, fully realized dream world that will totally captivate the viewer, leaving them, long after, with wistful memories of the deliriously happy hours they've spent wandering the lanes and byways of her imagination."–Charles Vess, winner of the 2010 World Fantasy Award for Best Artist . . . . . . . . . "Tales of princes and princesses, and bravery in the face of extraordinary odds, have remained a significant aspect of our cultural foundation, passed on through the generations through the work of gifted storytellers. Emotionally fulfilling and rich in content, Ruth Sanderson's romantic, realist paintings capture perfectly the sense and wonder inherent in the new and classic tales that she so enjoys bringing to life."–Stephanie Haboush Plunkett, Deputy Director/Chief Curator, Norman Rockwell Museum
