amish moving day

i love this book...i forgot to photograph a charming bookplate too. the 3 color silkscreen illustrations are lovely. the book is letterpress in its entirety, even the illustrations...which appear to be first letterpress and then silkscreened (although here it is recorded that they are 4 color engravings, hmmm). all in all wonderful, and i'm glad to have it.
