AMANDA'S QUIET BOOK
(n. p.) 1989 - Unpaginated, though 16 pages, made from blue cloth. Each page with an embroidered/sewn onlay image, usually employing different shaped/colored pieces of cloth. Binding - 12" x 9-1/2". Leaf: 10-3/4" x 8-1/4" Apparently a one-off book for a young grandchild ["Amanda"] made by her grandmother, and given as a Christmas present in 1989. The interior boasts such devices as a moveable clock ["What time is it"], a football with a shoestring lace ["Lace the football"], a color ballon matching game ["Match my colors", with detachable color circular pieces] & a two page spread with beads on a string, abascus-style ["I can count numbers / up to ten"].A charming, no-doubt, unique bookish item, of a folk-art nature, displaying wonderful ingenuity intended to capture a childish imagination. Some soiling from use, though still VG+. 3 silver ring binding of denim cloth with embroidered lettering & 'Raggedy Andy' figure to front cover 1st, and apparently only, edition. A unique copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
