Sparks Flew As Their Shovels Met for the First Time - the art of Rick Allen

Raven's Bauble

This charming Christmasy corvid mugshot is the work of Rick Allen, at Kenspeckle Letterpress which he runs with his partner Marian Lansky. So lovely! These are just the seasonally appropriate jems*, check out their whole gorgeously engraved library of work.

What is this "Trapper's Daughter" and where do I find it? And why isn't it published somewhere with these fine illustrations:
The Trapper's Daughter Takes the Otter Slide - seriously where is this book??
The Trapper's Daughter & the Bear Who Couldn't Sleep
Raven's Christmas
Ravens at the Window  


  1. Lovely! I didn't notice your spelling mistake because I was thinking about Jem and the Holograms and... why not!

    You're *truly* outrageous.
