H.M. Brock’s “Beauty & the Beast”


B&BBrockBeauty and the Beast” is both classic and au courant because–like a melody in jazz composition–it has inspired countless variations and still does. Laughing Elephant Press has put together an edition of the story with the lavish illustrations by H.M. Brock that originally appeared in 1914. I provide an Introduction to this sumptious offering, drawing on my own book about the fairy tale.
