The text is a short quote by William Howitt about folk art knitting in rural England.

The paper was made by Peter Thomas. The binding is a kind of accordion, one Donna developed and now calls the woven spine binding. Knitting needles are used to hold together the piano hinge spine. Full leather binding, with leather onlay of knitting swatch, with metal knitting needles inserted. Clamshell box. Number 1 of 2 unique copies. $425.
