I love reading mythological, folk and fairy tales and their psychological meanings. A while ago, I did some some postcard collages on this theme. Like many stories themselves, I wanted the additions to be very subtle and hardly visible at first glance.
Today, reading (let alone telling) children fairy tales seem to be out of vogue. I constantly meet kids who've never heard of Rapunzel or The Little Matchstick Girl and it makes me very sad. My childhood was so influenced by the tales I read and heard, both our parents even made up bed-time stories for my sister and me! I am still fascinated by Bluebeard and The Snow Queen and Sindbad's Adventures etc.
What are your favorite fairy tales?
