dc.description.abstractHow can it be that I have been collecting for seventeen years and never even knew that this crazy book existed?! Hats off to Greg Williams for finding it for me! Aesop serves as a kind of coat rack for hanging your latest nude photographs, just as one could do a nude Shakespeare or a nude Mother Goose. Overall, there are five fables, two folk-tale parodies, and one group of photos that did not work into the fables. In WS, Allen cleverly (1) chooses the poorer version, so that the story is about taking off clothes and (2) makes the subject a girl, so that the bet is about making her drop her cloak completely. In The Dancing Lamb, the wolf, playing the lamb's flute, begins to enjoy himself as the lamb dances. The Stomach Rebellion is done in color. The choice of its last illustration raises questions. MM, which uses a wine-jar, makes the most effective use of the medium. Lazy Elizabeth works off the Aesopic The Boy and the Filberts. The dust-jacket blurb says that this book breaks new ground in a well-worn field.en_US
