Fables : 1001 nights of snowfall by Bill Willingham( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 802 libraries worldwide
"Don't miss this stunning original hardcover collection written by FABLES creator Bill Willingham set in the early days of Fabletown, long before the FABLES series began! Featuring sequences illustrated by Charles Vess, Brian Bolland, John Bolton, Michael Wm. Kaluta, James Jean, Mark Buckingham, Jill Thompson and more, 1,001 NIGHTS OF SNOWFALL is both an entry point to the critically acclaimed series and an essential part of Willingham's enchanting and imaginative FABLES mythos. Traveling in Arabia as an Ambassador from the exiled FABLES community, Snow White is captured by the local sultan who wants to marry her (and then kill her). But the clever Snow attempts to charm the sultan instead by playing Scheherazade, telling him fantastic stories for a total of 1,001 nights. Running the gamut from horror to dark intrigue to mercurial coming-of-age, FABLES:1,001 NIGHTS OF SNOWFALL reveals the secret histories of familiar FABLES characters through a series of compelling and visually illustrative tales"--Publisher website

"After leaving the safe but stifling confines of Fabletown for the cruel and dream-crushing streets of Hollywood, the incomparable Jack Horner (a.k.a. Jack B. Nimble, a.k.a. Jack the Giant Killer, a.k.a. Jack of the Tales) found unprecedented fame and fortune by cashing in on his own overly embellished legend—only to have it all taken away by the unforgiving enforcers of Fabletown’s laws. Now, stripped of his wealth and forced into exile, Jack must return to his roots as a wandering ne’er-do-well, chasing after easy money and easier women. But upon hitting the open road, it soon becomes clear that the Mundane world boasts dangers, the likes of which even this most experienced and charming of rogues has never before faced. That's the problem with being so naturally amazing- the rest of reality is always a disappointment. "--
