illustrated by Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone 1979
(When I was little this was my favorite picture of Cinderella.)
Then at the thrift store I struck the jackpot with this large volume of fairy tales. It turns out the illustrators were twin sisters, Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone, who worked exclusively together. Their mother was an artist and costume designer, which makes sense because one of the things I love most about these pictures are the clothes and costumes. I'm feeling that compulsion to start collecting all their books!

(Madeleine spotted this page and had to read the story. She loves cats, especially when they're dressed 17th century!)
If anyone has anymore information about these books or the illustrators I'd love to hear it. Here's a site with some more info and pictures.
