We all know Hans Christian Anderson’s pleasantly haunting fairy tales. But who knew he collected hundreds of images, collaging them into spectacularly psychedelic books!? Thankfully Troels Andersen, director of the Silkeborg Kunstmuseum, lent the original compilation to the Royal Library so that it could be scanned, and also gave permission for it to be published on the internet. Thank you Troels! The Royal Library in Denmark has an online archive of another HC Anderson picture book here.
