Androcles and the Lion
A well-told version of the story, with bold red, gold, and black woodcuts. The best of the designs is probably that of the Colosseum; otherwise they are dramatic but not to my taste. Hawkins is careful: her emperor spares Androcles by holding up clenched fists. Everything in Hawkins' telling is well motivated except perhaps the trip to some water after the thorn-removal; here Androcles somehow understands that the lion wants him to follow.
