Art: Little Red Riding Hood by Artist Noelle Hunt
Children, especially attractive, well-bred young ladies, should never talk to strangers, for if they should do so, they may well provide dinner for a wolf.
—Moral to Charles Perrault's "Le petit chaperon rouge" ("Little Red Cap," 1697)

"There are various kinds of wolves. There are also those who are charming, quiet, polite, unassuming, complacent, and sweet, who pursue young women at home and in the streets. And unfortunately, it is these gentle wolves who are the most dangerous ones of all."
Source: Andrew Lang, The Blue Fairy Book (London, ca. 1889), pp. 51-53. Lang's source: Charles Perrault, Histoires ou contes du temps passé, avec des moralités: Contes de ma mère l'Oye (Paris, 1697).

this collage is infused with images of the gentle traps society creates for young women as well as the traps of the wolf himself. Such as the wedding cake the engagement ring, bouquet etc. I'll admit to being a little heavy handed with the "cherry" iconography...but it is society's "treasure" or "goodie"
Book is bound with silver coloured wire in a heart shape on the back
