The Twelve Dancing Princesses and Other Fairy Tales

4.0 out of 5 stars What I like about it is the large text and illustrations, Aug. 17 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this book to add to my other calla editions. What I like about it is the large text and illustrations, although the illustrations disappoint somewhat, being slightly cropped and has a yellowish tint. More could have been done to clean up these old scans. These are fairytales for adults, I doubt children will find it that entertaining. My purchase was through Amazon as a "new" book but upon arrival, it had deep shelf wear and small scrapes here and there. I wouldn't call that "new".

3.0 out of 5 stars is not long enough and has an unnecessary hole on top and does not stick well, July 25 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The cut out at the volume keys is not centered. Fits ok but could be more snug and dust collects at the edges.
The dye cut is also not clean, has a few jagged edges.
The screen protector does not provide full coverage, is not long enough and has an unnecessary hole on top and does not stick well.

I bought this just a year ago and it's already dead. It was great while it lasted.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like most buyers of Calla edition books, July 4 2014
Like most buyers of Calla edition books, I bought it for the illustrations. Unfortunately it wasn't all that great. The colors are very faint and dull especially in the snow queen. This is a cloth bound book and I prefer faux leather as it doesn't collect dust as fast. The binding and paper thickness is great. I like the large text. The story itself was OK but modern day children will find it boring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feminine and delightful., Feb. 3 2014
I really enjoyed this book. What lovely subjects and loose watercolors. Would be a nice gift for a woman. Not a whole lot to read here but that is not the purpose.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not well packed, July 5 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This monitor is ok. Clear but over saturated and needs to be adjusted by the video drivers. Asus does not provide a function to adjust the monitor saturation. The adjustments that can be made from the monitor buttons are not user friendly. The stand is very wobbly.
My package was delivered with 2 deep puncture marks that slightly scratched the monitor frame. The plastic bag was not properly placed around the monitor. Poor packaging.

2.0 out of 5 stars Strange story, Jan. 3 2013
This review is from: The Frog Prince (Hardcover)
This story is quite different than most fairy tales. There is no meaning or moral to this one. Not recommended for children as bad behaviour is rewarded in this retelling. The text does not flow well either. The illustrations are large and well drawn on every page but have very unnatural poses.

1.0 out of 5 stars half size ink volume, Dec 5 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this because of the sparkling reviews and price. My packaged arrived in about 2 weeks from ordering which is not bad. It came USPS in bubble wrap. Each cartridge is individually sealed but not airtight like some other brands and no paper boxes for each cartridge; just all dumped into one envelope. They do not look like the picture but that didn't bother me. What I noticed was the section for ink storage; it is half the size. These cartridges will last me half the time or cost me twice as much as I had expected. Also, it was overfilled so ink will go on your hands even if you open it carefully. Pictures of products should be shown larger with side views so customers do not have to guess or be "surprised". They do fit the printer. There is also no expiry date but that may be irrelevant since I will be using them up quicker than expected.

4.0 out of 5 stars Needs better printing, Oct. 29 2012
This book contains some beautiful poster art. It is a large format book but is a little thin. Some posters get the full page treatment like the Disneyland Railroad posters which was presented many times. The text is large and easy to read however, the black text is 70% smudged. It seems to not have dried sufficiently with some ink stains on a few pages. There is quality content here but does show signs of cheap binding and printing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice intro to Chinese artists, Oct. 13 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book has a thicker cover which protects softcover books better. The art inside is overall well done but not as good as the one chosen for the front; it is slightly better than the spectrum series. It is well put together with sharp images. The black ink however, seems to smudge on quite a number of pages which is more noticeable on the text part. For under $20 this is a very decent art book.
