T-Shirts

 

 

1990 Long-sleeved black "Aesop Lives" t-shirt, with a gray fox. Gift of the Ehrle family, Christmas, '90.

 

 

 2018 Long-sleeved t-shirt featuring "Everyone wants to steal your cheese" with images of a fox and crow.  $27.99 from Amazon, Oct., '18. 

The crow in this fable does not really ride the back of the fox, but it is nonetheless wonderful to see the fable's wise lesson take hold broadly in our present culture.  Well, maybe not everyone does!

 

 

2020 T-shirt featuring "Quid rides? De te fabula narratur" from Horace.  Short sleeves.  $22.99 from Goathead Tees, Brown City, MI, through Etsy.

This has been a favorite line of mine from Horace's Satire I 1, verse 69.  He has just been retelling the story of Tantalus as part of his satirical attack on people's wayward desires.  "Why do you laugh?  Just change the name and the story is about you!"

 

 

 

3019 T-short with Harrison Weir's illustration of TH and "Aesop's Fables The Tortoise and the Hare."  Gift.  Christmas, 2018.

What a treat to see an old classic illustration like this still alive land well!  The bunny sleeps as the turtle trudges
