Swedish Folk Tales and Fantasies
Bauer was born in Jönköping and showed artistic talent from an early age. When he was 16, he left home to study art in Stokholm and within two years, he was attending the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts. His first major commission was established in 1904 and a suite of images arising from the commission was later published in Lappland : Det Stora Svenska Framtidslandet - En skildring i ord och bild af dess natur och folk. Three years later, Bauer began to work on a suite of coloured and monochromes images that was to be the first in a series for which he would gain lasting fame : Bland Tomtar Och Troll, first published for Christmas in 1907. Bauer continued as the sole contributor for the annual Swedish publication until his final suite of illustrations of the 1915 edition.

Florence Anderson was an English artist active as a book illustrator throughout the first three decades of the 20th Century. Her art was influenced by the British Fairy School. Her first major commission appears to have been an extensive suite of colour but also monochrome illustrations prepared for The Dream Pedlar published in 1914. Anderson received further substantial commissions throughout the decade that followed, including major suites such as TTravelling Companions (1915) ; Fairy Tales from Brazil (1916) ; The Magic Kiss (1916) and The Twin Knights of France (1919).
