A rather strange tale about the 'passing' of spring flowers. Written as if by hand and illustrated throughout with black / white and blue / white line drawings. Unusual binding of heavily textured brown paper covered boards with ilustration and decoration to upper board. Heavy end papers of a moiré silk effect paper. Pages uncut and intended to be left as such. 24 pp [unpaginated]. 29x23 cm. Dark patch to both boards. Text block is very tightly inserted and this has caused the ffep to split for about 1/3 of its length.
