Literary Gingerbread
The Grimm brothers “Hansel and Gretel” likely put Gingerbread Houses on the map! In 1875 “The Gingerbread Man” who runs away captured public imagination.“The Gingerbread Boy” from the US has a cowboy version too! The book far left is an urban update with subways and fire escapes. It seems people can’t get enough gingerbread, edible or fictional!

 Popular variant of the tale set in modern day New York!

 A fine example of a Christmas Gingerbread
House beautifully crafted in North America.
