  6. THE DIVINE COMEDY Inferno Purgatorio Paradiso

    Regular Price: $30.00

    Sale Price $14.99

    Dante’s masterpiece of literature is well matched by the peerless art of Gustave Doré. Dante and his guides, Virgil and Beatrice, journey through Hell in an allegory of the passage of the soul through the Afterlife. The illustrations were drawn or painted by Doré, then engraved in either steel or wood. They have rarely been out of print since their first publication in the 1860s. His artwork perfectly complements the movement from the darkness and horror of tormented souls in Hell, through to the light—Paradise Regained. Nicely reproduced. Handsome gilt and silver embossed hardcover. Learn More
  7. CICADA
    $19.99

    A new picture book, for all ages, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Arrival. Cicada tells the story of a hardworking little cicada who is completely unappreciated for what he does. He works in an office but clearly doesn't fit in well with his tiny size and his appetite for green leaves! But in the end, just when you think he's given up, he makes a transformation into something ineffably beautiful. A metaphor for growing up? A bit of inspiration for the unappreciated striver in all of us? Yes, yes, and more. Embossed cover. Learn More
  8. ELFIN RHYMES By Norman

    Regular Price: $24.95

    Sale Price $14.95

    This charming children's book, written by an anonymous author known only as "Norman," was first published in 1900 and is now extremely rare. It features 11 rhymes that capture the mysterious and sometimes ridiculous world of goblins, witches and fairies. Naughty imps and elves love to play pranks, tease and make mischief on humans, animals and one another. And while few of these fairy tales have a happy ending, all of them offer the reader a moral lesson of sorts. Each verse is accompanied by several drawings by illustrator Carton Moorepark in either one, two or three simple colors. Learn More
  9. R. CRUMB'S DREAM DIARY
    $25.00

    For more than 40 years, R. Crumb has documented his nightly dreams in a meticulously kept, written journal. This stood as a guarded secret, strangely enough, while Crumb has never lacked a compulsion to write about the rest of his life...in his comics. All of his well-documented preoccupations are present—rampant egomania, insatiable lust, profound self-disgust, the sad beauty of old America, the moral bankruptcy of new America and the fool's errand quest for spiritual enlightenment. Here they are, entirely untamed, springing forth from forces beyond even his control--his own sub-conscious. All published for the first time. Lightly illustrated. Learn More
