Tales of the Greek Heroes – The Folio Society
Romy Blümel was commissioned by The Folio Society to create designs for the binding, slip case, endpapers and seven internal artworks. The book contains nineteen stories retold by Roger Lancelyn Green, including tales of Hermes and Apollo, the Argonauts and the fall of Troy.
From ‘The Battle of the Giants’
‘Giants now is the hour! Tear up the mountains and hurl them at Olympus! Tear down the Immortals from their high thrones and bind them with our kinsmen the Titans in Tartarus! And one of you shall have Aphrodite to be his wife, and another shall have Artemis – while I, your king, claim Hera as my prize!’
The rocks hurtled through the air, and whole hilltops were torn away in the struggle.View overview of project
