Foe's posted an excerpt from Rumpelstiltskin, which has reminded me about a current quest. I am desperate to find a copy of the Baba Yaga tale that I read as a kid; it was part of a set of tales that had beautiful illustrations, black silhouettes against ink-swirl coloured backgrounds. Really graphic. Absolutely no idea who printed or illustrated them. I just remember a house on chicken legs.. and a flight of stairs, and Prince Vassili.
Born in 71, I probably read these when I was about 6, so late 70s.
UPDATE 28/11: Found it!
