Description

This book 'Aesop's Fables' presents a vast collection of entertaining stories with thought-provoking morals along with Rackham's beautifully imaginative and humourous illustrations. Many of the earliest children's books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Pook Press are working to republish these classic works in affordable, high quality, colour editions, using the original text and artwork so these works can delight another generation of children. About the author: Aesop (c. 620-560BC) is famous for his Fables which are still used as the basis of many children's plays and cartoons and to teach moral lessons today. He was born in Greece and little is known about his life except that he was a slave of Ladmon of Samos who received his freedom. Aesop probably did not personally commit his fables to the page but rather later eminent Greeks such as Socrates recorded them. About the Illustrator: Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) was one of the premier illustrators of the early 20th Century. He illustrated many books, the first of which was published in 1893. His humour, romance and soul made him the leading illustrator of the early twentieth century and his work is to be found in versions of almost every classic from Hansel and Gretel to The Tempest, from The Pied Piper to Peer Gynt. Characteristic of his work are gloomy forests of sinuous trees, nubile fairy maidens, and unsightly ogres and trolls. Throughout his career he developed a very individual style that was to influence a whole generation of children, artists and other illustrators. His haunting humour and dreamlike romance adds to the enchantment and fantasy of children's literature.
