Book of the Three Dragons - cover by cloutierj Book of the Three Dragons - cover by cloutierj
I found a book!  It was in a local antique mall - booths, old jewelry, knick-knacks, dust-catchers, and a few books.  And one was a six-dollar first edition from 1930 of a wonderful, classic retelling of some of the Mabinogion tales, Kenneth Morris' Book of the Three Dragons.  The paper was in pretty good shape - yellowed, but not crumbling or torn.  The cover, though, was held on with tape; no spine, battered corners, dirty, frayed cloth all around the edges.  I snapped it up, brought it home, took off the old cover and made a new one.  This is how it turned out.  I copied an interior image and enlarged it, and inked three copies which I inset into the front cover.  It was a Christmas gift for someone whom I knew would appreciate it.  She recognized what it was as soon as she saw the front!
(It has recently been republished, by the way, by Cold Spring Press.)
