dc.description.abstractHere is Paul Veres' excellent facsimile of Lorioux' original work from 1921. The colors are crisp. After all, it is the colors that attracted Paul in the first place. The cover illustration not only portrays the whole story in one glance. It hints at the story's visual foci: the wolf's sword and his eyes. The cover is also an excellent example of Lorioux' delightful colors. The visual storytelling here sets up nicely for the violent ending. In the preceding panel we see a bloody wolf impaled on a stake near the shepherd's fire and his dog. The title-page comes from Lorioux' entire volume. The back cover reproduces Lorioux' delightful front cover showing La Fontaine sitting between two young children and, with quill in hand, reading his own fables to them. Two mice run away. The inside back-cover includes a picture of Lorioux and cites his edition of 1929. I notice now what seems true of all six copies: Hachette on the inside back-cover is called not a Librairie but a Librarie. Eight pages.en_US
