About the Author

The author:
Hans Christian Andersen was born on April 2, 1805 in Odense, Denmark, a day that has since become known as International Children’s Book Day. An only child with a voracious imagination and creative streak, Andersen was nurtured in his education by his father as well as several key sponsors. Andersen wrote novels, poems, and 168 tales, many of which have become international classics. By the end of his life, Andersen’s tales had made him famous, and he was deemed a “national treasure” by the Danish government.

The editor:
TASCHEN editor Noel Daniel graduated from Princeton University, and studied in Berlin on a Fulbright Scholarship. She received a master’s in London and was the director of a photography art gallery before becoming a book editor. Her TASCHEN books include The Circus 1870–1950 (2008), Magic 1400s–1950s (2009), and two illustrated volumes of fairy tales: The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm (2011) and The Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen (2013).
