Edition title Czech Grimm was born from the revival idea of the folk art tradition and retelling old stories. As a follow - up to Brothers Grimm, the prominent collectors of myths, legends and fairy tales in Germany, we want to continue in this narrative journey in the context of East European countries. One of the people who was collecting and archiving folklore stories in our country was Karel Jaromír Erben. He was our Czech Grimm. We want to revive the Grimm tradition and continue where K. J. Erben finished with his work.
