Exceptional Artwork

This project began as a way to understand the text of the fable, but I quickly realized that for many versions of the story, the illustrations were at least as important as the text. I have tried to provide some sort of image for every variation in the collection, though most have only small, low-quality woodcuts. A handful have really excellent art which I thought bore special mention. For the visual folks out there, I've created an exhibit of the five best pieces of artwork in the collection.
