(Rand McNally & Company, 1972)
This may be my first flip out book, in which a two-page spread includes a page that folds out to make a triptych. The pages are well matched to create two different pictures using the image on the left, one with the ...
(Windmill Books, 1970)
The flyleaf is right: the eighteen tales here are illustrated with haunting cubist imagery. One especially good technique, used four times, expands a first illustration into a larger second one in a different color. ...
City Mouse--Country Mouse.
(Scholastic Book Services, 1970)
Meant for little kids. Pleasant water-colors with cartoon statements. The illustration style is itself that of kids. I enjoy the assemblies in BC. Also included is LM. Packaged with a 33 rpm recording.
A Type Specimen of Garamont: Several Fables of Aesop.
(Harold Berliner, 1973)
See my two other editions from Berliner, using Lutetia (1970) and Baskerville (1971). A first page gives a lovely little history of Garamont, which was first created in 1540, only eleven years after French printing first ...
Pop-Up Fable Fun
(London: Chatto and Windus. Los Angeles: Intervisual Communications, 1978)
A new combination for me: a pop-up with picture-changing (not 3-D) glasses, unfortunately not present with this book. The boy crying Wolf! and the woodchopper needing an axe-handle are cleverly put into the same pop-up ...
Treasury of Aesop's Fables
(Avenel BooksCrown Publishing, 1973)
No index or T of C. Very small engravings, probably too small to be of use. The text may be from the eighteenth or nineteenth century, but I cannot find any attribution. A reprint of some of Bewick's art from Select ...
Fables of Aesop (Korean)
(Kaewon Publishing Co.Kyew¿¿n Ch¿¿ulp¿¿ansa, 1979)
The versions have some nice language goofs and seem well done. A lovely gift. Compare the new book of the same title published by Choun in 1980/88.
Once in a Wood: Ten Tales from Aesop
(Greenwillow BooksGreenwillow Read-alone Books: a Division of William Morrow and Co., 1979)
A lovely little book I first found at the Milwaukee Public Library. Several black-and-white drawings per story, many of them very well done and lively. The stories are told in very simple fashion.
(Octopus Books, 1979)
Nice huge reproductions of Bewick with the center of the action highlighted in a second color. The coloring-in of Doré's work somehow softens it. The color graphics are distinctive but not entirely successful.
Lions and Lobsters and Foxes and Frogs.
(Young Scott Books, 1971)
First found in 1991 after years of searching! A wonderful, witty presentation combining Rees' tellings (from his earlier Fables from Aesop, 1966) and Gorey's pictures. Do not miss The Impatient Fox. There is always ...
