Inspired by “The Court of the Printers’ Guild” by W. Loftus Hare, Goudy’s work blends elements of fantasy with a detailed depiction of the crafts and traditions associated with the printing industry, making it a unique and imaginative tribute to the art of printing​. “A Long way from here, in the Printers’ Paradise, lies the City of Crafts, a city peopled only by workers in the art preservative of all arts, and toward which place journey all who excel in good work.” Condition: some light wear to covers. Page edges untrimmed. Stain to bottom left corner of back board and repeated to bottom right corner of rear pastedown, otherwise very good.
