Poems by James Whitcomb Riley, wood engravings by Robert Buchert
Tryst Press, Provo, UT, 2001
10 x 7.25 x .5”
New Oriental Binding with onlays of colored chicken feet, inlaid goatskin lines, and sprinkled with gold. Rough gilding of three deckled edges. Titling in gold foil and carbon. Leather hinge. Pastepaper endsheets by Claire Maziarcyzk.
Design evocative of the whimsical, magical, and sometimes creepy tone of both Riley's poems and Buchert's illustrations.
