Oblong Miniature Book. 2 7/16 x 2 7/8 inches. Unpaginated. [56] pp. An interesting artist's "book" to describe: The hand-written text includes a title page, 5 bifolia of Peter's hand-made papers with Muir's text hand-written, and stitched into the binding, 5 bifolia of translucent artist's paper with Donna Thomas's water color illustrations directly applied by hand and stitched onto stubs, and several blank leaves of Peter's hand-made papers at the front and the rear, one of which contains the handwritten notation (as a colophon) "1995, Donna Thomas"; text clean, unmarked. The covers are of beige paper folded onto themselves with the outer surface with slits through which are laced multi-color braided threads, the fold in the paper serves to secure the braid inside the fold at the fore-edge, the braids are stitched into the open spine; binding a bit loose, but I think this is more a function of the experimental binding than it is a "defect" due to mis-handling, for instance. SIGNED by Donna Thomas on the colophon. SA1019-012. RARE. Fine. UNIQUE, a one-of-a-kind book by Donna Thomas with hand-written quotes from John Muir and Donna Thomas' name hand-written on the colophon. The text contains quotes from John Muir and 5 water-color illustrations by Donna Thomas based on her personal observations of the High Sierras. REFERENCE: Not in Bradbury.
