The Wild Swans Adrienne Segur

The Danish swans are happening now in the new movie adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson's The Six Swans. De Vilde Svaner trailer is being featured at Heidi Anne Heiner's Sur la Lune Fairy Tales Blog today (9/14/09) The film makes me think of the illustrations of Kay Neilsen as well as those of Adrienne Segur.
Sur la Lune is also reporting on the extraordinary fairy tale performances of Japanese artist
Miwa Yinagi.
