Fairy-Tale Files, published once weekly, feature three variations of a fairy tale chosen by one of Fairy Tale Review’s Assistant Editors.
Anais Mitchell and Jefferson Hammer croon the legend of Tam Lin on the album Child Ballads, which features custom linocut block prints by Peter Nevins.
USC Cinematic Arts team Robyn Gray and Richard Emms developed this Tam Lin video game using layered cutouts to create a 3D paper world.
In this 1970 adaptation by Roddy McDowall, Ava Gardner stars as the immortal Queen of Fairies who lords over her youthful male concubines.
This edition of Fairy-Tale Files is brought to you by Fairy Tale Review Managing Editor Laura I. Miller.
