The Snow Queen King

As Steve points out in the comments to the previous post, the king of Snow Queen art is H. J. Ford, from The Pink Fairy Book. Even though the art is not in color, it fairly glows.

Simply sublime... The colored Fairy Books of Andrew Lang contain some of the most amazing art ever produced. I remember when they were reprinted in the late sixties. I used to sit for hours, just looking at the illustrations, wishing I could enter them. That last embrace of Gerda and Kay has been burned into my mind ever since.
