Freedom, a Fable is an illustrated artist's book with text
and pop-up silhouettes. At first glance it appears to be a
nineteenth-century children's book, but it is decidedly not.
It tells the story of a female slave whose life after
emancipation veers far from her dreams of meritocracy,
revealing that Freedom, a Fable is not just the title of the
work but is also the lesson to be learned.
