Thread Name: Ballad Books
Subject: RE: Ballad Books
Again, I was wondering what was most popular about them; the illustrations or the more "artistic" side of them, or the content of them...and why!

You seen this one?

Charles Vess - The Book of Ballads

Worth a punt if you want to see The Great Selkie as a graphic fantasy; and King Henry, Tam Lin, Twa Corbies, True Thomas, Alison Gross etc.
