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 story ‘The Quest of the Golden Fleece’
The great gleaming dragon slid slowly from the tree, coil within coil, and, resting its terrible head on a bank of sleeping poppies, slept for the first and last time of it’s life.
Only by the charms of Medea did Jason himself remain awake, and when he saw that the dragon slept, he drew near and looked up at the shining Fleece.View overview of project
