Pied Piper of Hamelin
Hamelin Town's in Brunswick
By fair Hanover City:
The river Weser, deep and wide,
Washes its wall on the southern side;
A pleasanter spot you never spied;
But when begins my ditty,
Almost five hundred years ago,
To see the people suffer so
From vermin was a pity.
This famous poem by Robert Browning about a plague of rats, and the mysterious Piper who charms them away, was the first book that Frances Grant owned, and at the age of five could confidently recite the whole of it, and she has now produced the illustrations for this lovely book.
The text and her 30 meticulously detailed pictures are digitally printed in yellow and brown on Surrey Cartridge Paper, and the heavy red card cover is letterpress printed with the head of the Piper thermographically enhanced in gold, with the title in black.
140mm high and 150mm wide. 65 pages.
