[BKARTS] Minnesota Center for Book Arts Winter Book: The Grammarian¹s Five Daughters



Since 1988, Minnesota Center for Book Arts has engaged artists, designers,
papermakers, bookbinders and printers in producing handmade, limited edition
books featuring work by Minnesota authors.
 
MCBA¹s eighteenth Winter Book publication features a story from
award-winning author Eleanor Arnason. The Grammarian¹s Five Daughters dotes
lovingly on language through the story of a grammarian too poor to give her
daughters a dowry. Instead, she sends each one into the world with a bag of
words. Each daughter, embarking upon her life¹s journey, soon discovers the
winning ways of nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs and prepositions. Taking
the reader through unusual twists and turns, the story reveals how having
the right word for the occasion can lead to unexpected fortune.
 
The Grammarian's Five Daughters is available in Deluxe, Standard and
Chapbook Editions. The three editions were designed by MCBA Artistic
Director Jeff Rathermel, Jana Pullman and Steve Pittelkow as a team. Jana
Pullman also served as master letterpress printer for the project.
