The Best Tailor in the World
Wit and wisdom in the Folktale
This collection of nine folk tales includes tales from China, Estonia, France, Germany, Iran, Ireland, Japan, and North Africa. One is a Chassidic tale. The book resembles a medieval block-book, in which text and illustrations are cut on the same block. Each story covers a double spread. Printed with rich black ink specially made by the artist on a heavy weight Rives paper.
Each story covers a double-spread, printed on one side of the sheet only. The spreads are hinged together to make an unique binding enclosed in a covering wrapper. (24 pages)
