Cloth binding for 'Stories by Hans Christian Andersen’

Arthur Gaskin


Cloth binding

8¼ x 5¾ inches

This is volume one of a two volume set. The cover is printed from a woodblock and is an original work. Gaskin uses his image tonally, representing an Arcadian domain in which young readers engage with the very text we are about to read. [Commentary continues below]
