One of 100 numbered copies signed by Gaylord Schanilec, with a slight poem by him hand-set in Bodoni metal type. Nine multi-color wood engravings by Gaylord Schanilec and a wood engraving by Thomas Bewick, all printed from the original blocks.From the author / printer: As it turned out my mid-life vessel the "Hungry Mind" (Lac Des Pleurs, 2015) didn't get me to the other side, and A Little Book of Birds led to yet more water. The idea of birds captive within unopened pages was originally intended as a challenge for book collectors-to open the unopened pages-or not. As years passed the birds slowly emerged and their captivity began to mean something else. I thought this book might free the birds. It did not. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
