woodland wisdom

my very talented friends chet phillips and julie sullivan have collaborated, the creative couple that they are, to make this book of "fables from the forest"... interpretations of aesop's fables. pictured below is "the rooster and the jewel". illustrations and haikus are by chet, and the book is bound by julie using cloth, leather, and wood. please support their endeavors and visit their sites by clicking on their names above. (i'm also super excited about chet's tiki portaits.) the holidays will be here before we know it, and i know i'm shopping here.

see more interpretations of aesop's fables here. aesop was a slave in the 6th century bc, and is said to have lived in greece, though no one knows for sure, and some argue he never existed. see a detailed history here.
