16 spellbinding pictures of the new fantasy exhibition at Leeds Central Library with dragons and timeless tales

Classic storybooks filled with centuries of captivating fairy tales are being opened up this week as dragons land in Leeds for a spellbinding new exhibition.

Visitors to Leeds Central Library are being invited to step inside the pages of antique works by iconic storytellers such as The Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen as the library explores the remarkable realm of fantasy.

And a jaw-dropping pair of mythical dragons are also carefully watching over their eggs in the library in an installation created by fantasy artist Anne Stokes.

Among the elaborately illustrated tomes on display in Fantasy: Realms of Imagination, will be vintage copies of Grimms Fairy Tales, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Gulliver’s Travels and Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, complete with stunning illustrations by the renowned Arthur Rackham.

The gallery below features a selection of pictures from the enchanting exhibition:
