Lewis Carroll's timeless poem "The Walrus and the Carpenter" has been a favorite of children for decades. It was first published in Carroll's Through the Looking-Glass, but has since become a classic in its own right. Our libretto presents this enduring poem, with whimsical illustrations by John Hutton and a foreword written by Adam Gopnik.
This is the sixth title in our libretto series. Each volume in the libretto series will appear both in a sewn letterpress wrapper and also a limited edition run of 149 leather-bound, hand-numbered copies specially printed and signed by the author. This half-leather version is printed on lavender paper, bound in purple leather with handmade purple and gray paste papers, and signed by Adam Gopnik.
