Charles Seddon Evans was Rackham’s editor at William Heinemann. In 1919 he expanded the tale of Cinderella from Charles Perrault’s 1697 collection to create a tailor-made setting for Rackham’s illustrations. This was such a success that, the following year, they collaborated again, this time on The Sleeping Beauty. Once more Evans lengthened the story, retelling it in his inimitable conversational style.
