Book description

Utopian Tales/Utopische Märchen features socialist and communist fairy-tales mainly written in the 1920s, selected and translated by Jack Zipes.


It is an extended edition of Zipes' Fairy Tales and Fables from Weimar Days, first published in 1989, with additional tales, the original German texts, and 60 newly commissioned illustrations – one for the original German version of each tale, and one for the English translation. [etc]



Utopian Tales/Utopische Märchen is the most ambitious collaboration that we've never published.


The funding that we had in place to print the book is sadly no longer available to us, and we are currently trying to find alternatives.


We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved with the book for their patience and support.
