dc.description.abstractThis book, About Squares and Circles, is itself almost square (7¾ x 8). It is a highly imaginative work showing the stages of eight fables and two contes in geometric figures. OF is the first and simplest. A large black-and-white circle remains unmoved while a small red figure adds successive layers to itself through the first five of the six panels. In the sixth, the many-layered figure breaks into three sections. This six-part story is much like the four-part story on the front cover. Sometimes, as in WL (26-27), it is more the angle of an object -- here the wolf's head -- that is suggestive. In the sixth of six panels there is no longer a sheep, and the wolf's head has reversed its direction away from the stream. MM and TH are the two hardest for me to figure out. Other fables include Le Héron, FC, FG, The Fox and the Goat, LM, and WC. The two stories are Le Petit Poucet and La Belle au Bois Dormant. This is in many ways a minimalist book that leaves plenty of open spaces and provides minimal information; it invites the reader to put things together.en_US
