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.
