[Mount Vernon, NY]: Editions, [1992]. Spiral bound. Miniature book, 31 pp., signed by Ed Hutchins, in a plexiglass case. Fine. Item #19112501

Book Artist Edward H. Hutchins believes that: everyone has a story to tell; that the best books are not mass-produced; and that when one let's one's imagination soar, the most amazing creations are possible utilizing, often, fairly inexpensive materials. Thus was born - Guerilla Bookmaking.

Ed Hutchins has produced at least over eighty books between the years 1968 and 2005 (perhaps more - gleaned from several sources). Always creative and frequently carrying a social justice message, Ed's books charm and delight. His own web site offers a few books which are still in print; this volume, exploring the delight of the recipient of a letter, is out of print and we are pleased to offer it here.
