Ruth Sanderson uses threads of Chinese and Norwegian folklore in The Crystal Mountain, an alluring rendition of the “magic brocade,” this time set in fifteenth-century Europe. A stunning collection of intricate, textured paintings will enchant as the story of a humble weaver, covetous faeries, a mysterious stranger, and, of course, a quest befitting a brave and dashing hero —complete with magic whistle and magnificent steeds—unfolds in vivid detail, bringing the weaver’s beautiful tapestry to life.
