Jessie Marion King – A House of Pomegranates 1914

jessie-king-pomegranates09With a bit of time, I’ve re-scanned the book A House of Pomegranates illustrated by Jessie M. King.  A House of Pomegranates is a collection of fairy tales, written by Oscar Wilde, that was published as a second collection for The Happy Prince and Other Tales (1892). Wilde said once that this collection was “intended neither for the British child nor the British public.”

This is one of the most beautiful book illustrated by Jessie M. King. The illustrations are colorful, with less details that her earlier works, but are as wonderful and a great compliment to the fairy tales of Oscar Wilde. Enjoy.
