According to the statement on the back cover, fables try to arise our admiration for noble and honorable behaviour. Arise? Fourteen fables in a large-format pamphlet of 8½ x 11. This may be the nicest privately published book I have. DLS has a good moral: Fine clothes may disguise a fool, but silly words will give him away (9). TMCM speaks of town mouse being invited by his country mouse cousin, but the art shows both wearing dresses. Is this computer generated art? It seems a fusion of several different styles. One of them includes highly defined glossy figures, especially in the foreground. Another includes backgrounds with less definition and strong two-dimensionality. Sirko uses the two-page spread for each fable well, often giving two phases of the fable a page each. There is a T of C at the front.
