A Nestlings Press Miscellany


A Nestlings Press Miscellany
(2023, 192 pages, $24.95, 6 inches wide by 8.75 inches high)

After issuing thirty-six books since 2012, the overworked gnomes at Nestlings Press decided it was a good time to rest and take stock. This book looks back at every title issued, with a few behind-the-scenes glimpses, but the chapters mainly include new material that was unavailable at the time or, while it may have only a tangential relationship to each book, is too good to leave out. For instance, Thirty Thousand Pigs was about confusing one word with another, so here you'll find artist Rockwell Kent writing about always being confused with artist Norman Rockwell. Treasures in the Antic had a few snippets from humorist Will Cuppy, so here are Cuppy's U.S. footnotes for Sellar & Yeatman's British book Garden Rubbish - footnotes that have absolutely nothing to do with the book. There's a Don Camillo story by Giovanni Guareschi, illustrations by Walter Trier for Kipling's Just So Stories and by Mervyn Peake for a limerick-satire by Quentin Crisp, a long verse retelling of the fairy tale The Frog Prince, and the first three cantos of A Child's Guide to Dante's Inferno . Yes, it's a true miscellany.

The book is limited to two hundred numbered copies (each copy hand-numbered on Page 2), with ten lettered copies not for sale. There are nineteen pages in glorious colour (Peter Newell illustrations from Mr. Munchausen, a few paintings by L. Leslie Brooke, etc.). And the volume is printed on creamy laid paper.

You can order this book through PayPal ($24.95 plus tax plus shipping).
