King Picus PR colour w

Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso) took the Romanised Greek myths and made them his own, injecting these stories of the supernatural with passion and energy.

King Picus is part of book XIV from the Metamorphoses,
written in Rome in the age of Augustus and
completed around the time of the birth of Christ.

Andrew Waddington was inspired by the Arthur Golding translation of this story, and produced four beautiful woodcuts.
He then approached Amanda Harris
who wrote this three-page adaptation.
