Riverside, CA: Bo Press Miniature Books, 2012. 18 pages. Approximately 1 1/4 x 2 1/2". LIMITED EDITION of 20 copies, this being #20. Decorated slipcase with printed Japanese paper, metallic design elements, and black tanned chicken leather. Printed Japanese paper with black chicken leather quarter-bound, 5 bands on spine, printed label on front cover, signed and numbered on the colophon by the author, black and white illustrations throughout, all contents in fine condition.
The joke in this book is that the slipcase and book use chicken leather and Baba Yaga's hut is perched on chicken legs. Both the book and case showcase Pat Sweet's blend of innovative design elements along with a classical bound style. Based on the Slavic folklore tales of Baba Yaga, these stories reflect her as an old woman who has a benevolent relationship with forest wildlife, as well as a scary witch-woman. No more copies of this edition are currently for sale on the market (as of 9/20).
