dc.description.abstractEarlier I had found a hardbound copy of this book, complete with a design of three masks on its cover and a ribbon inside. Now I have found this paperbound version, also numbered. As I wrote then, this is a wonderful book! I feel lucky that it has fallen into my hands. Pierre Varenne in his preface speaks of the most French of the poets helping people "to forget the gloomy faces of today." Thirty-two artists of this group selected each a fable of La Fontaine, and each created two images then for the fable. The styles are varied and distinctive. Let me choose nine pairs of images from the thirty-two. I find these particularly good: "Les Voleurs et l'Ane" (5-6); "La Mort et le Boucheron" (7-8); "Les Membres et l'Estomac" (13-14); "Le Lion abattu par l'Homme" (17-18); FG (19-20); "La Vieille et les deux Servantes" (25-26); TB (35-36); MM (47-48); "Le Curé et le Mort" (49-50). This book is a treasure! #776 of 980 numbered copies.en_US
