EDITORS COMMENTS
This enchanting illustration captures the heartwarming moment from Hans Christian Andersen's beloved fairy tale, "Thumbelina," published for the first time in 1835. In this silhouetted scene, the tiny Thumbelina stands on tiptoe, reaching up to kiss the Swallow goodbye. The Swallow, a loyal friend and companion to Thumbelina, is poised to take flight, ready to embark on his journey south for the winter. Thumbelina's golden hair cascades down her back, and her delicate features are etched in intricate detail, reflecting the historical illustration style of the 1830s and 1950s. The Swallow, with its graceful wings spread, is a beautiful contrast to Thumbelina's tiny frame. This image, published by ILN in 1959, transports us back in time to the magical world of fairy tales and the simple joys of friendship. The Swallow's farewell kiss marks the end of a cherished moment between Thumbelina and her feathered friend, leaving us with a sense of wonder and nostalgia for the enchanting stories of our childhood.
