Abstract
Bodemann gives a good description of this curious and impressive book. This oversized (9½ x 12½) book has an envelope as much as a cover. Across the whole cover runs a band with fable figures: animal heads on human bodies against a red background. Inside there are some twenty full-page illustrations. These show animals in stylized landscapes with lively plant forms around them. Laviert in Grautönen, jeweils ein oder mehrere Bildelemente hervorgehoben durch einfarbige Kolorierung. (Washed in gray tones, in each case one or more elements of the picture is emphasized through its monochrome coloring.) The best of the illustrations may be WC, WL, and BW. Also good is The Mountain and the Mouse. The illustration is always on the right, with one or two fable texts on the left-hand page. Jaern reminds me of that other dark Norwegian, Edward Munch, who died in 1944. Oslo in 1941 would have been a place to tell some fables!
