Why read it?

2 authors picked Neil Gaiman's Snow, Glass, Apples as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Snow, Glass, Apples is my all-time favourite Gaiman story, which is quite staggering given how much of his work I adore, but I'd only seen it in short story form before, in Smoke and Mirrors. Then I was given a copy of just Snow Glass, Apples, illustrated by Colleen Doran. The artwork is stunning, beautifully dark with a tight palette and rich, intricate detailing. Every page is a work of art, allowing you to linger and slowly digest the tale as it unfolds. This story is a huge influence for me, in particular for my collection Once Upon A…

From Victoria's list on dark fairytales.

Adapted from Neil Gaiman’s retelling of Snow White, Colleen Doran’s gorgeous and complex art, with heavy uses of black and ornamentation, is the perfect pairing for this dark story. I found Doran’s page compositions particularly inspiring as she largely avoids traditional panel borders while still keeping the story easy to read. This graphic novel inspired me to be more fluid and abstract in my own page spreads in The Great Gatsby.
