Condition: See description


Loretto, MN: Red Studio Press, 1977. Edition not stated. Oblong octavo (20x25cm); aqua/pictorial paper wrappers; 146pp. General soiling and handling wear; minor chipping to wrapper extremities, creases to front corner and spine; light foxing throughout text; ffep signed by author, with inscription and sketch (dated April 11, 1985). Overall Very Good or better. Noted Minnesota artist Gregory W. Bitz provides a humorous, fanciful collection of poems and illustrations that are perhaps best described by Chas Fowler: "He leads us down the garden path, and beckons us slyly under shadowy ferns among mystical beetle tracks. No one is at home, and the woods are full of little people tinkering with tiny hammers. Branches creak. Choirs of weasels are singing. A deaf rabbit strolls by. And while you stand there perplexed, Bitz is hiding in the bushes around the side of the house, dressed in an owl suit, chuckling all to himself."
