My summer project for 2009 is to hand-scribe 24 Aesop’s Fables. I am using English text written in Greek characters (the transliteration table to be posted in good time), completed by September 3rd. The illustrations will be rendered in linocut and wood engravings. Below are the first two fables, The Fox and The Grapes and The Lion and The Fox.
