MetadataShow full item record
This is one of the more ingenious items in the collection. It is a double-sided accordion book. One opens the book and pulls out a succession of fables, each on one page, in an accordion-like long string of pages, twenty-three such pages to be exact. (The twenty-fourth page is pasted to the cover.) Fold them back up, close the cover, and flip the book up--and you are facing a second book with a new set of fables, contained of course on the obverse of the first pages. The fables are beautifully illustrated by traditional artists--all, I suspect, beyond copyright range. I cannot find a listing of the artists used here. I notice Rackham, Winter, and Detmold for sure. I think there may also be some illustrations from Weir. I recognize many others but am unsure now of their sources. The interior accordion is about eleven-and-a-half feet long! Besides being ingenious, this book is sturdy. DS and TH are on the two covers. Beware, this looks from the outside like just another knock-off fable book!
