I only know one both poetically and editorially reliable translation - , that by Keith Bosley in the Oxford World Classics. The paper is so-so, the usual paperback thing, and there are no illustrations. You can find illustrated versions on Amazon - but of course they are retellings for children (Babette Deutsch for instance). Read Bosley and look at illustrations on the internet, e.g. here: http://kalevala.gov.karelia.ru/art/museums_e.shtml
is my recommendation.
