By A Customer on 5 Aug. 2002
Format: Paperback
This should become contemporary classic. It is fantastic and magical, absorbing and stimulates the imagination with its wonderfully textured description of world travel and the workings of an old wooden printing press. Not to mention the story of the printers love for a woman who may or may not be dead.
