A “small portable zoology”: a book combining 50 animal poems by Christian Bernard and 50 collages by Hippolyte Hentgen.
Animal poetry, especially fabulist, has long been used to draw up pleasant portraits of “our friends the animals”. It was necessary to continue without prejudice the examination of this kingdom more than close to ours. This is what these Fabulesare all about, teeming with revelations about fifty familiar animals, often unknown and sometimes justly unloved. The logic of their world has been neglected too much. The poems and collages in this book fill this gap.
