One Thousand and One Nights

by Olga Dugina

Sheherazade, the king's beautiful wife, is due to be executed at dawn -- unless she can convince the king to change his mind. That night she tells him a wonderful story which, as dawn comes, she leaves unfinished. 'Will you let me live to finish the tale?' she asks. 'Of course,' replies the king, 'I must know what happens next.' Night after night, Sheherazade tells story after story, always leaving the last one incomplete. And so for one thousand and one nights, she remains alive...

This is how the enchanting collection of stories known as 1001 Nights has been passed down to us. It includes the well-known stories Sheherazade, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, The Ox and the Ass and The Horse of Ebony and How the story of Sheherazade ended. In this beautiful new edition the stories are brought to life by the enchanting, elegant illustrations of Olga Dugina.

 

Olga Dugina was born in Moscow in 1964 and was passionate about drawing and painting from her early childhood. She studied at the Krasnopresnenskaya Art School in Moscow, where she met her husband, fellow illustrator Andrej Dugin. She went on to graduate from the Moscow Arts College.
