Little Red Riding Hood 1810 Chapbook.

I found myself a little over excited by this discovery (while researching in The British library) of Little Red Riding Hood in a Chapbook published in 1810 in London. Chapbooks were small pamphlets sold by peddlers door to door and at markets and fairs and were precursors today's picture books. There is no happy ending with the grandmother and little red being rescued in this early version.

Warja Honegger-Lavater II

I was very excited to come across a version of one of my treasured possessions a tactile rendering of Warja Honegger-Lavater's Little Red Riding Hood at Bologna. This version utilizing textiles and textured paper and card to create the 2-dimensional imagery of the original. The grandmother is depicted through a knitted circle and little red through red felt, whilst the wolf was rough hairy and scratchy fabric whilst the forest is created through embossed pages. This version was published in 2009 by Published by Maeght & Les Doigts Qui Rêvent.
