Books, like dogs are for life not just for Christmas! Any one of our books would make a great present but we have three new titles in the collection which would be brilliant gifts.
Robert Frost’s ‘Christmas Trees’ is the perfect present for a poetry lover or a lover of trees. It is beautifully illustrated with wood engravings by the award winning artist Abigail Rorer of the Lone Oak Press in Massachusetts, USA. It is a heart-warming, thought-provoking tale first published in 1929 although originally written by Frost in 1915. It is a small but very collectable item.
‘Dracula’s Crossing’ by Joanna Robson, is a fantastic example of the fashionable art of laser cutting. It is a dramatic work which sits beautifully on a shelf or mantelpiece, the sounds of the sea, the crashing of the waves are almost audible! And at £25 it’s a bargain.
And last but not least, we are thrilled to have copies of Ronald Searle’s ‘La Famille Cassť’ which have come to us courtesy of his family who discovered them tucked away while clearing his house in France. Each is signed and numbered by Searle from the edition of 50 which were printed in Paris in the 1970s but it seems, never distributed. For lovers of Searle’s work this is an exciting new discovery. The 16 original lithographs are wonderfully fresh and full of humour.
