The great satirical poetry of la Fontaine is accompanied by modern line drawings by the American sculptor, painter and illustrator, Alexander Calder. The spare, whimsical drawings are perfect to interpret the fables, which are known for their subtle wisdom and barbed wit.
All the imagination, whimsy, and invention that have made Alexander Calder's mobiles and stabiles so popular. 36 fables - in rhymed translation by Eunice Clark - with a Calder drawing for each fable and 12 additional vignettes. Includes "The Lion in Love" and "The Hen That Laid the Golden Eggs."
