Die schönsten Fabeln
The two covers of this book give us the two crucial scenes of FG, tastefully done. The book goes on to present a good selection of fables from various sources with helpful colored illustrations. This is one of the few contemporary fable books I know to use promythia. Perhaps the most dramatic visual contribution comes with the two-page spread for GGE. Another, a few pages later, is Das sind nur kleine Fische. For me one of the excellent contributions of this book is that it presents Luther's Mit Herren ist nicht gut Kirschen essen, and complements it with two sets of illustrations. The first is the predictable presentation of animals. The second has three servants bowing while the lord eats cherries off of a tree. The contrasting illustration styles for wind and sun near the end are also very effective. Though Aesop and Luther are frequent here, we find also Tolstoy, Hey, Busch, La Fontaine, Novalis, Michaelis, Herder, and Storm.
