«Walker Studio is an imprint aiming to produce “books for book lovers” and this, its launch title, certainly encapsulates that. Acclaimed artist Shaun Tann has created meticulously staged sculptural works of 75 Grimms fairytales, each photographed and accompanied by an excerpt from the story. The result is just stunning: hypnotic, dreamlike images that capture the essence of these timeless tales.»

The Bookseller

«A nightmarish mix of cute and gruesome»

The Guardian

«At first, The Singing Bones is a book to look at and be bewildered, but the more it is studied, the more fascinating this lesson becomes in not accepting the traditional, but extending its meaning, without losing the original. It is both intriguing and interesting.»

Newbury Weekly News

«One of my absolute favourite books which takes the dark side of fairy tales is The singing Bones by Shaun Tan, which is a collection of photographs of clay sculptures made by Tan and inspired by Grimm’s fairy tales, of interest to anybody who cares about art, or sculpture, or fairy tale, or indeed horror.»

Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times

«Genius is extremely rare, immediately recognisable, and very humbling. Shaun Tan's gloriously original and immensely physical maquette interpretations of Grimm, engaging not with individuals but with bedrock characteristics, have much more affinity to prehistoric clay carvings than to any contemporary artist, and they're by turns comic, alarming, beautiful, macabre, utterly disarming and deeply moving. Each dramatically-lit image is accompanied by a short passage from the matching tale, while the endnotes summarise each tale in the book. Foreword by Neil Gaiman... Introduction by Jack Zipes... the sheer thought and love that has been put into every aspect of this superb, cross-disciplinary enterprise makes it not only my book of the year but of the decade.»

«[...]a mesmerizing art book revealing Grimms’ Fairy Tales in sculptural form[...]»

theartcollector.org

«“The Singing Bones is a very rich resource: a treasure chest of entertaining stories, an inspiration for art work, a prompt for discussions and research, a handsome beautifully designed book, and above all an exemplar of outstanding creativity.”»
