"Amazing binding by Annie ROBINE, who plays with the primary colours of the illustrations to dress her open-spineed black buffalo cover bound by strips of salmon dyed and sewn with red linen thread, the bottoms of the visible notebooks being covered with Japanese paper in the same shades. The harmony with the shades of the illustrations is remarkable. The binding was reproduced in the monograph that Yves Peyré, former director of the Bibliothèque Sainte-Geneviève, dedicated to Annie Robine (Le Livre sublimé, Annie Robine, p. 32) in 2002.

ORIGINAL EDITION of a great rarity of this delicious unpublished children's tales by the Breton author, 100 copies of which are printed on velin lana royal.

Splendid.
