This is my desert island craft book. Indents of letterpress on a rough cardboard cover. Wobbly lined illustrations and photos of Purgatory’s eclectic creations. Exquisite workmanship and original thought, that, thanks to Esther K. Smith’s kindly tone, leaves you not weeping at your own inadequacy, but shot with starting pistol eagerness.
I mailed Esther an origami envelope fold (Annalee taught me) I danced in the living room when she replied.
