Description: Extremely rare 'homebrew' Christmas alphabet book written in verse by the Carmelite Monastery in Liverpool.
K for the Kings
Who from afar
Saw His Coming in a star.
They followed where its radiance led,
And kneel, adoring, round His bed.

Illustrated with delightful, full-page monochrome sketches in blue, orange, pink, purple or green. Text is set in wonderful handwritten calligraphy and is of a contrasting colour to the illustration around it.

Laminated covers with hand-cut, adhesive text. Covers are foxed. Pages are in superb, unmarked condition.

Incredibly, neither author nor illustrator has been credited for their efforts. No publication information, but assumed to date from c.1980.

Measures 15 cm × 22 cm (6″ × 8.8″). Landscape 24mo. Unpaginated.

Price: £8.75
