Description

Anyone familiar with this classic tale can easily follow the wordless action in Warja Honegger-Lavater's translation of Little Red Riding Hood into pure visual symbol. Each character is assigned a color (red for the girl, black for the wolf), which enacts the drama as it unfolds through the pages.
