Autumn 2008


A facsimile-style edition of a book first published (Dent & Sons) in 1932. It’s a superb collection of traditional nursery rhymes with illustrations by the Rackham-infuenced Folkard (who learnt to illustrate designing programmes for magic shows) that are bold and timeless.
The printing quality of the book (it was printed in Spain) is particulalrly noteworthy, with heavy black ink that makes each page shine and shimmer.
