This is my Stein collection. Only one is a first edition, but they sure are pretty, aren’t they? I’m still amazed that 1) Stein and Hurd collaborated on a children’s book and 2) that it has been republished this year.
On the flap of Ida: “IDA was the name she chose for the new one, and here it is, presented faithfully to you by a publisher who rarely has the faintest idea of what Miss Stein is talking about, but who admires her from the bottom of his heart for her courage and for her abounding love of humanity and freedom.”
I got one too — from @courtneyaj’s mom — and I agree, it’s perfect. :)
Just want to say I bought/received a lot of bookstore goodies in the last year and this is far and away the best thing I got. Perfect mug shape. Use it every day. Think of Powell’s.
Napping with a kitten on either side of me,
my body a log,
and their purrs back and forth
In case you need them, here are some kittens…
