Order Nr. 139552

Limited to 95 copies. Printed from the original blocks and bound in marbled wrappers made during 2010 by Louise Brockman. A fine copy.

From the artist's website: "Nine accordion-fold pages showing ten eighteenth-century wood engravings printed from the blocks, part of the group of over 600 woodblocks from the very first children's books. The engravings are accompanied by a short letterpress text. This selection augments the story of the blocks told in the miniature Woodcuts for good boys & girls, with four of the blocks present in both volumes."
