It Can't Happen Here
by Sinclair Lewis

 Minsky binding of alum tawed goatskin, 23K gold, 8-point type, acrylic paint, and artist's blood, with Vermont Vigilance endpapers.



The above work has been acquired.  It began a series of Minsky bindings on this title, each on a copy of the first edition. The spine design will be the same, and the cover concept, but the ararngement of type, blood and paint will vary. As they are completed additional photos will be posted. This is not a limited edition. I don't know how many of these I will be able to do. If you would like to subscribe to the next available number, please use the form below or call.
