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 Beginning of the Labours’
With a cry of rage, Heracles drew his sword and charged, lunging with all his strength at the Lion’s chest as the huge creature reared up on its hind legs to strike at him with its mighty claws.View overview of project
