Historical, Prophetical, Pictorial, Poetical

Inspired by the dozens of “Jacks” in the Toronto Public Library, this version of The House that Jack Built is bound in carousel or star form, giving an extra dimension to the twelve double-page spreads of hand-colored scenes. Letterpress printed from polymer plates, on Magnani mouldmade paper, hand bound in green goatskin leather with gold blocked title and contained in a house-shaped slipcase, a separate booklet of notes on the origins of the rhyme accompanies the book. Distinguished Book Award (Miniature Book Society 2005). Judge Magda Saina’s comment: “Great illustration appropriate to the subject and origin of story.” Size 2.75” x 2.125”, Edition of 40 (signed), CAD $475.
