Hans Christian Andersen

The Snow Queen
  • The Snow Queen

  • Hans Christian Andersen's magical tale of friendship and adventure is retold through the beautiful and intricate illustrations of Finnish illustrator Sanna Annukka. Cloth-bound in deep blue, with silver foil embellishments, The Snow Queen is a unique work of art.

    Sanna Annukka is familiar to many from her collaborations with Marimekko and her artwork for Keane's album, Under the Iron Sea. For her second book project, she illustrates Hans Christian Andersen's classic fairy tale, The Snow Queen.

    A beautiful gift to give and receive.

Hans Christian Andersen (1805–1875) wrote more than 150 haunting tales. Many were based on folktales and many were his own original creations.
