From what I've read, the illustrations in this book were actually created first, then the stories written around them.

I didn't like this one as much as Fifty-One Tales, but it was still quite good. It was less of the weird fiction and more straight fantasy - though even with the most fantastical stories, there was still the hint of weirdness in them.

I only wish that the version I've found (off MobileRead.com) had better resolution on the graphics. It was so small and grainy, it was difficult to see what must be beautiful paintings.
