About This Item

Essex, Connecticut: Gallery Press, 1976. Hardcover. Fine/Very Good. Laffal, Ken. A wonderful homage to the wooden children crafted by John Vivolo by the photographer-artist Ken Laffal. Sturdy, attractive, tightly bound, internally clean hardcover copy, with unbruised tips, neat and tidy paste-downs; not ex-library, with neither highlighting nor underlining. Apparent First Edition, but not so stated, and no number line present. Bright and shiny dust jacket, illustrated, showing some wear to panels but with a short, closed tear, tape-repaired, light chipping, not price-clipped. Bound in a short, nearly square octavo format. 144 pp. and with lots of lovely black-and-white photographic reproductions of his lovely toys. Member, I.O.B.A., C.B.A., and adherent to the highest ethical standards. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
