Halloween Featured Book: Witches I Have Known
Looking around the gallery today I ran across this terrific little pop-up book by Lark Preyapongpisan titled, Witches I Have Known. Perfect book to celebrate Halloween.
Letterpress printed and case bound with hand made paper covers, one of the passages in this intriguing little book reads:
"Frustrated or bored she sold her soul to Satan for the eccentric luxury of transforming herself into a blue boat. (why blue one wonders...)"
Lark tells us this is, "a simple little book about an ancestor named Mary Bradbury. She was convicted of being a witch during the Salem Hysteria. Despite being condemned she escaped burning. This is the family’s version of what happened."
