Best Snow White Illustration Ever?

I purchased this image for about $2.00 awhile back I think it is my favorite "Snow White" illustration ever.

Now that I have your attention, some reminders:
1) If you have read Beyond the Glass Slipper, please consider leaving a review at Amazon or Goodreads. I expect nothing more than honesty, and believe that is what the people who come to EC will give.
2) The Krampus anthology submission window is still open. I've had some entries, but there is room for lots more.
3) The Beyond the Glass Slipper writing contest has a top prize of $200 and four runner-up prizes of $50 each. I've had some intriguing submissions for this, just like Krampus, but, also like Krampus, there is room for more.

Now, the awesome eye candy! The illustration is by Monro S. Orr.


  1. I hadn't seen that one before!
    Unlike a lot of fairy tale people who don't like Snow White at all - which I can understand - it's one I'm continually drawn to at different stages of life. Thanks for sharing.
    I'll be leaving a review along the lines of "if you like fairy tales you need this book on your shelf" soon, because it really is unique and fills a void (sequel please?) but want to do that when I have most of my brain functioning again.
    In the meantime: more of everything please!

  2. This is close to the strangest-but-very effective fairy tale illustration I've seen. I am fascinated. Compositionally unconventional and motionless, full of portent, and an unusually subtle yet wicked queen. Thanks for posting. Going to research it now

  3. I agree that this is an outstanding illustration. Thank you for posting.
