Hansel & Gretel / by Clive Hicks-Jenkins

Clive Hicks-Jenkins is collaborating with Simon Lewin of St Jude's Prints to produce an artist's picture-book of the fairy-tale made famous by the Grimm Brothers. The book will be produced in the Random Spectacular imprint, and this version will introduce new elements to the tale, including gingerbread zombie henchmen, and a witch who removes her prosthetic nose to better scent her prey. (According to the original text, witches have weak eyes!) The book is due out in 2016.  

The book-trailer for the project is a collaboration between Clive Hicks-Jenkins and artist Phillip Cooper (see image below for Cooper's model of the witch's house) with camerawork and editing by Pete Telfer.
