Why We Love This

Proverbs and Paper-Cuts from China was printed by hand at the Penmiel Press in England in 1986 and is number 93 of only 100 copies. It is a fine example of the books as work of art, and is signed by its designer-printer Edward Burrett. The drawings for the proverbs are by Clarke Hutton, and the book is illustrated with 15 paper-cuts, some hand-colored, all made in China. Very fine and as new in paper-covered boards and a thin paper slipcase. Wonderful proverbs as well.

About Barbara Farnsworth

My bookstore, an old wooden building at the edge of a New England trout stream, houses thousands of used, rare and antiquarian books, with particular emphasis on Home and Garden subjects -- food and drink, gardening, interior design and architecture. I also carry titles on fashion, children's books and literature. Books really do furnish a room, beautifully!
