historical 1932 #philosophy #animation  via +Open Culture

More Decentralized Web Summit and related links, https://www.diigo.com/user/vcvaile/%23DWebSummit

#fables + related +The Public Domain Review links like "Cosack Fairy Tales," "The Algonquind Legends of New England" and "The Hare of Inaba"

http://publicdomainreview.org/collections/the-algonquin-legends-of-new-england-1884/

http://publicdomainreview.org/collections/the-hare-of-inaba-1892/

Call it a welcome break from news and politics (or the upside of digital overload)
One of the earliest works by the American parodist Guy Wetmore Carryl, this collection of fables are adapted from Jean de La Fontaine's Aesop-style originals from more than 200 years earlier.
