Dr.Seuss - The Cat Behind the Hat - The Collector's Edition
Amazon Publishing, US, 2012. Hardcover, Slipcased. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Theodor Geisel (illustrator). 1st Edition. NEW AND UNREAD - STILL IN ORIGINAL PUBLISHER'S SHRINKWRAP. Presenting a deluxe foil-stamped cloth covered velvet lined slipcase, enclosing a cloth covered 9.75 x 12.25 inch 320 page hardcover book, one 12x 16 inch scrolled color lithograph, and three 10.5 x 8.5 inch black-and-white prints tucked into a pocket on the inside cover of the slipcase. This exquisitely-produced collector's edition redefines Theodor Geisel(known to the world as Dr Seuss) as an iconic American Artist. Illustrator by day, surrealist by night, Dr Seuss created a body of little-known work that he called his "Midnight Paintings". For sixty years this allowed Geisel to expand his artistic boundaries outside the confines of commercial influences and deadlines. A handsome slipcase holds the cloth-covered edition of THE CAT BEHIND THE HAT along with 4 lithographs ready for framing. The book exuberantly juxtaposes Geisel's "Midnight Paintings" with his best-loved childrens' books. Though he fiercely protected his "Midnight Paintings" from criticism during his lifetime, his intention all along was for these works to be seen when he was gone. This comprehensive look at the art that he created over his lifetime is an eye-opening peek behind the public persona into the real story of the man who was Dr. Seuss.
