Katz and Mice: A Winter's Tale (Artist's Book Series XIV)

05119-IMG_6140A lovely little book that tells the tale, in block prints, of two mice, a fight, and a snowman. My copy came in a red envelope (inside a plastic bag with a snowflake sticker to close it). I'm not certain if that is all the artist's original design. The packet also included a note on the artist:

"Babette Katz is a printmaker and maker of artist's books. Her artist's books are in the library collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art, among others."
