Dallas, TX: Aredian Press, 2022. Approximately 4 x 12". LIMITED EDITION of 5 copies, this being #2. Design binding by Patrice Miller of Aredian Press. The structure is decorative paper over heavy book boards with paper label on cover, stiff paper Tyvek accordion spine backed by Indian cotton screen printed paper, flag book design with blue, red, and green cover weight papers to back the letter illustrations, colophon, and limitation which is, signed and numbered by the publisher, in fine condition. Beautifully structured and original book.

First published in 1983 with only 100 copies, this is a beautiful (but typically macabre for Gorey) book with illustrations and text referring to each letter of the alphabet. An example: The way to Hell is down a Well.. 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.
