Gender Swapped Fairy Tales
Our guests for this episode are wife and husband team, Karrie Fransman and Jonathan Plackett. Their new book Gender Swapped Fairy Tales imagines a world where the princesses wear shining armour and race to rescue their sleeping prince, and where kings sit by windows sewing and longing for a child. In this book, traditional stories take on a whole new dimension thanks to the unusual partnership of a computer algorithm and some very beautiful illustration.
