The creators of Once Upon a Time asked illustrator Kevin Tong to create a series of prints based on Grimms’ fairy tales. The prints were used as illustrations in the new Once Upon a Time book (being released Dec. 20) and are also being sold as limited-edition signed and numbered silkscreen prints.

One print was released last week, and the second was released today, and both have already sold out. They should be releasing a new one every Thursday for the next four weeks, so if you want one, check the site where they are being sold — Mondo — or their Twitter account — Mondo News — for the exact time of the releases, and be prepared to act fast.

The book contains 30 Grimms’ fairy tales, the Kevin Tong illustrations, and a foreward by the OUAT creators. It comes in hardcover and Kindle editions. The Kindle edition comes with the script for the Once Upon a Time pilot episode as a bonus.

The release date for the hardcover was moved up from Dec. 27 to Dec. 20, and the pre-order price is $10.87 for the hardcover and $9.99 for the Kindle edition. Here’s a sample: Snow White.
