These illustrations were scanned from the book: Favole di Esopo (Classici per Ragazzi) - tradotte in versi da Ferdinando Giannessi e illustrate da Fulvio Bianconi - Volume Primo. Poligono, 1946.

Fulvio Bianconi (1915-1996) was one of the most famous post-war Italian graphic designers.
He conceived a huge number of covers and illustrated very many books for the most successful Italian Publishers, such as Mondadori, Vallardi, Garzanti, etc.
