Abstract
This is one of the loveliest gifts I have ever received! A stiff-board cover uses the medieval picture of Aesop that graces the background for my To Jesus Through Aesop conferences on DVD. That cover is graced by a (wax?) seal and a complex set of ribbons. Inside one finds texts, pictures, cut-outs, stamps, and repeated designs of animals. The first set features a Hungarian stamp of GA that I now will have to find on its own! A black-and-white illustration of FS is titled Date Night! Other fables touched on or represented include WS; The Cat and the Bag of Wheat; TH; FG (again in a Hungarian stamp); and Juno and the Peacock. I realized only after admiring and handling the book several times that it opens out as an accordion to reveal a backside set of pages graced by a number of repeated stamped images in a wash of lovely colors and patterns. Remarkable and precious!
