1st ed.
Celebrating the twentieth anniversary of this classic depiction of Aesop on stage, here, in all their wisdom and humor, are the best of these timeless fables, selected and adapted by Barbara McClintock, and illustrated in her inimitable nineteenth-century anthropomorphic style. This collection contains the artist's interpretations of nine fables, including such familiar ones as "The Fox and the Grapes," and a fine selection of lesser-known examples, "The Wolf and the Lamb" and "The Crow and the Peacocks. "All are revitalized by McClintock's uncanny ability to capture humanity, with all its strengths and weaknesses, in the expressions of her exquisitely drawn costumed creations. Filled with the delicacy of line that has come to be her trademark, these images are bound to please readers of all ages as well as collectors of fables for generations to come.
