The Forest. Peep Show
London: Warren Editions, 1981. An enchanting peep show by the well-known children's author and illustrator Harold Jones, revealing a view deep into forest filled with deer, squirrels, and other animal life. Comprised of six layered panels, plus the illustrated front panel bearing the title viewing aperture. In the background are a waterfall and mountain peaks with trees beginning to show autumnal hues. Printed by Christopher Skelton at Skelton's Press for Jonathan and Phillida Gili. In a slipcase covered with Curwen pattern paper and a hand-colored label, numbered and signed by the artist. The project was initially begun in 1981, but the artist and publishers quickly became overwhelmed by orders and realized that they had underestimated the amount of time and work it would take to hand-color and assemble each copy. The edition was finally completed in 1993. One can easily understand the delay: the hand-coloring is precise and intricate, and each of the panels is quite detailed. Measures approximately 7 by 6 1/4 inches, and 22 inches when extended. Extremely fine.
