Limited Edition Private Press book printed by Rampant Lions Press, Cambridge with 14 lino cut illustrations by Corinna Sargood and bound by Black Cat Bindery, Somerset.
The Rampant Lions Press was founded by Will Carter, and published its first
book in 1936. Will’s son Sebastian joined the Press full-time in 1966. Over the
years the Press built up a reputation as one of the leading fine presses in the
world. Sebastian retired at the end of 2008, and closed the workshop.
Corinna Sargood, a life long friend, worked with Carter intensively on
image-centered adaptations of her work: Sargood illustrated the two
Virago books of fairy tales edited by Carter; and painted pictures for the
film The Magic Toyshop, adapted from Carter's 1967 novel.
