The Wild Swans; Jackie Morris

The Wild SwansThe Wild Swans by Jackie Morris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I served on ENFYA we frequently talked about trim size, and one of my favorite books is a Bloomsbury edition of Julian Barnes' Flaubert's Parrot which, I confess, I bought solely based on trim size! Here we have a small size book, one that could be taller and thinner but then it would be less bijoux and have less impact. The story is a familiar one ("The Wild Swans") but the combination of size, illustration and text in sepia tint just make this version special.
