Colorful Aesop


While looking for pigs in honor of National Pig Day in a variety of versions of Aesop’s Fables, something else popped up, hand painted illustrations. The painting is quite crude and may have been the work of someone bored rather than someone trying to decorate his/her favorite book. Regardless, it’s quite interesting and at times lovely.

Perhaps, this is the artist’s signature.


This book contains hundreds of illustrations, including a pig/hog. Happy National Pig Day!
