Overview


The most enduring tales of fantasy are appreciated by readers of all ages, generation after generation. This trilogy of novellas by critically acclaimed author Mark Helprin will stand that test by time. The heroes of his imagined kingdom pit the power of their love and devotion against dark forces of greed and suppression. His themes resonate for readers of contemporary fantasy as well as those who cherish classic legends and tales. This Calla Edition presents Helprin's novellas — Swan Lake, A City in Winter, and The Veil of Snows — in a single volume, as he had always intended. Award-winning illustrator Chris Van Allsburg's 42 full-color plates complement Helprin's prose with sensitively wrought, finely nuanced images — sometimes grand, sometimes fanciful, always evocative. This signed, numbered edition, limited to 300 copies, includes a deluxe slipcase.

I am also an adult who bought this book for myself. The interior illustrations are beautiful, and the story is compelling. However, based on the image on this web page I was expecting a beautiful dust jacket. There was no dust jacket on the copy I received. I paid for most of it with a gift card, so I don't feel too ripped off, but i prevented me from giving a 5 star rating.

I am an adult who bought this book for myself. I really liked the story, and the illustrations were very nice. The ending is rather sad though. Very nice quality book with heavy pages and nice color on the illustrations.
