8vo., original lime green card covers printed in black to upper cover; with numerous illustrations throughout by Rigby Graham; printed on handmade paper with Milligan's signature in the watermark, as well as numerous ram watermarks; pp. [xxiv]; fine.
Limited edition, No. 23 of only 90 copies printed on Sheepstor paper. Handbound and set by Toni Savage. During a visit to Dartmoor, Spike Milligan had a local craftsman create some hand made paper in the traditional manner, using his signature, as well as a ram, as the watermarks. This Sheepstor handmade paper is exclusive to Toni Savage and is used only for Spike's poetry.
Rigby Graham was predominantly a landscape painter, printmaker and designer. John Piper wrote that he had an: “unusual and indeed enviable capacity to make romantic and dramatic images out of ‘simple’ scenes – sometimes almost totally deserted ones”.
