Snow White in New York

Published in 1986, Fiona French‘s Snow White in New York  may be hard to find, but it’s worth the trouble. What happens when Snow White is coming of age in the ’20s and her stepmother is queen of high society? “Mirror, mirror on the wall” is replaced with The New York Mirror, a parody of London’s gossip news. The text is honed to a perfectly simple story while the incredible lines and colours of Ms. French’s illustration capture New York in jazz era glory.
