Euripides' Hippolytos, retold by Gita Wolf and Sirish Rao, illustrated by Indrapramit Roy / ISBN 9780892368648 / A handmade silk-screened 28-page hardcover, 8.5 x 11 inches, from Tara Books (India)
Hippolytos, son of Theseus, spurns Aphrodite, goddess of love, and instead pledges his attention to Artemis, goddess of the chase and hunt. An enraged Aphrodite sets out to revenge her hurt pride. This lyrical re-creation of Euripides’ moving tale captures the eerie lament of a bloodstained Greek sea, with illustrations inspired by the classic pottery of ancient Athens.
