Le Roman de Renart: Fabliaux du Moyen Age
I like Guy Sabran's visual style very much, and I am happy to encounter it here in Renard, as I had encountered it in GP's Fables of La Fontaine in 1952 and 1960. The book offers both full-colored partial-page illustrations and duochrome images. Two of the best of the full-colored illustrations occur at the beginning and near the end. The former of these is the title-page's presentation of Renard the pilgrim standing with a book Ma Vie in his arm and talking with two children. The latter image presents Renard's supposed funeral on 34. Renard's encounter with Chantecler is shown on 7. Renard lies apparently dead on the path on 17 and is being found by a travelling merchant with his wagon full of eels.
