Once a Mouse
By Marcia Brown
The brief, carefully chosen text taken from a fable of ancient India tells of a hermit magician that changes a mouse into a cat, a dog, a tiger, and finally back into a mouse again. Illustrated in woodcuts filled with patterns, the overlaying of the gold, red, and black add even more dimension.
