About the Author

Jean de La Fontaine was a French fabulist and one of the most widely read French poets of the 17th century. He is known above all for his Fables, which provided a model for subsequent fabulists across Europe and numerous alternative versions in France, as well as in French regional languages. Marisa Vestita was born in Taranto in 1975. She studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts of Lecce and at the same time she did internships in comics, stage design and stage-craft. Always curious about everything regarding the world of images, in 2002 she moved to Milan where she received her first commissions as an illustrator. She is very interested in applying computer technology to art and completed a course in digital graphic design at the European Institute of Design.
