Modern Greek Storytellers

In the Summer of 1964, I prepared illustrations for the Swedish book "Nygrekiska Berättare" (Modern Greek Storytellers). All drawings below came about on the Greek island of Crete. The book contains short stories by eleven modern Greek authors, collected and translated by Senta Hapjópoulos Slöör. It was published by Bernces Förlag in Malmö.
