Jean de La Fontaine - Laurence Pernet

Fascinated by the world of fables, as talented an artist as she is captivated by typography, Laurence Pernet offers us a gem of sensitivity and refinement with a collection of nine fables of Jean de La Fontaine, as carefully chosen as they are illustrated.

Her drawings create a universe inhabited only by animals. Having worked equally patiently on both the layout and composition of her work, Laurence Pernet has created a touching work of sincerity, deep authenticity and finesse, an elegant tribute to the work of Jean de La Fontaine. A collection for young and old, which will leave you with one goal: to learn by heart each of these fables and become the silent accomplice of the lion, the fox, the crane and other creatures.

Each fable is accompanied by a large format illustration insert 14 x 20 cm.

The wolf and the crane

The lion beaten by the man
The kite and the nightingale
