Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Jessica Hische (illustrator). Reprint. 196 x 138 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. From A to Z, the Penguin Drop Caps series collects 26 unique hardcovers featuring cover art by Jessica Hische It all begins with a letter. Fall in love with Penguin Drop Caps, a new series of twenty-six collectible and hardcover editions, each with a type cover showcasing a gorgeously illustrated letter of the alphabet. In a design collaboration between Jessica Hische and Penguin Art Director Paul Buckley, the series features unique cover art by Hische, a superstar in the world of type design and illustration, whose work has appeared everywhere from Tiffany Co. to Wes Anderson s recent film Moonrise Kingdom to Penguin s own bestsellers Committed and Rules of Civility.

It continues with more perennial classics, perfect to give as elegant gifts or to showcase on your own shelves. N is for Nesbit. While exploring the environs of their summer home, five brothers and sisters find a Psammead, or Sand-fairy, in a nearby gravel pit: Its eyes were on long horns like a snail s eyes, and it could move them in and out like telescopes; it had ears like a bat s ears, and its tubby body was shaped like a spider s and covered with thick soft fur; its legs and arms were furry too, and it had hands and feet like a monkey s. The Psammead is magical and, every day, the ancient and irritable creature grants each of them a wish that lasts until sunset. Soon they find their wishes never seem to turn out right and often have unexpected and humorous consequences. And when an accidental wish goes terribly wrong, the children learn that magic, like life, can be as complicated as it is exciting. Five Children and Itcontinues to be one of our most enduring stories, as fantastical and as it is true to the wonders of childhood. Bookseller Inventory # AAT9780143124665
