  9. Original illustration for the Marsh King's Daughter.

    Original illustration for the Marsh King's Daughter.

    An unpublished illustration for "The Marsh King's Daughter," a fairy tale written by Hans Christian Andersen in 1858, and one of those closest to his heart. In the story, a group of storks acting as a Greek chorus, tell the tale of Helga, daughter of the Marsh King, who is a beautiful and violent girl by day, but a sad and gentle frog by night. She is redeemed after saving the life of a Christian priest doomed to be sacrificed by the Vikings, and here Andersen touches on the themes of faith and immortality so common in his writings.

    Fairy Tales.

    First trade edition, first impression, of one of the most beautiful editions of Andersen's fairy tales, work for which Nielsen had begun in 1912.

One of the finest illustrated editions of the Brothers Grimm; "Nielsen is a brilliant colourist and a highly decorative illustrator, his works, formed into frieze-like patterns, are closest to Persian or Middle-Eastern designs and therefore akin to Leon Bakst or Edmund Dulac" (Houfe, The Dictionary of 19th Century Book Illustrators and Caricaturists, p.

  14. Road Dog Ale.

    Road Dog Ale.

    -
    Steadman's revised promotional material for the Road Dog Ale, following a charge of profanity. He began creating original art for Flying Dog's labels in 1995, and initially designed the labels with the slogan "Good Beer, No Shit." However, this was deemed obscene by the Colorado Liquor Board, who removed all Road Dog beer from the market. The slogan on the labels was temporarily replaced "Good beer, no censorship", as seen here, while Flying Dog Brewery launched a legal battle to reinstate the original slogan; this was granted in 2000.
