The Iron Tonic: or, A Winter Afternoon in Lonely Valley [design binding]
Harcourt, Inc., New York 2000 - New York: Harcourt, Inc., 2000. 8 1/2 x 5", oblong. Design binding by Patrice Miller of Aredian Press, 1/4 bound black leather spine with cutout black strips, artistic illustrated paper over original cover, textured endpapers with illustrations of poison labels attached, original book content complete, fine condition. (Toledano A31[d]).A typically strange Gorey work with a beautiful custom binding. Very limited edition, the artist has stated no more than 5 copies will be issued. Patrice Miller's work has found its way to private and university collections, in the states and abroad. Human foibles, nature�s panoply, and artistic cleverness cannot help but inform future work. She continues to bind, and rebind, in Dallas, Texas. The story, told in rhyme, centers around the happenings in a valley in wintertime, as the title suggests. Many of Goreys typical themes appear through the book: an orphan, a large bird, a man in a fur coat, a statue, etc. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
