Abstract
This large-format coloring-book without any cover is fascinating! It contains fifty full-page illustrations, thirty-six of them colored, in its 200 stapled-together pages. The colored illustrations, though paginated, have a blank obverse, while the black-and-white illustrations do not. The first half or so of the book maintains a four-page rhthym including a non-illustrated fable, an illustrated fable, the illustration, and a blank. Among the best illustrations are: FG with a proud fox walking away (26), The Swallow and the Little Birds with its dressed birds in the tree's branches (31), WL (39), The Child and the Schoolmaster (75), MM with its dancing eggs (163), and MSA (179). Many of the visual motifs are derivative.
