I letterpress printed only 80 copies of this book on Biblio paper and have hand bound it in my shop. A few copies remain.
My uncle Tom brought an uncommon presence to those who were fortunate to know him. He was humble yet a great teacher. This tribute to Tom includes a fairy tale I wrote on his advice that fathers should write such stories for their children. Tom was a remarkable man who grew up during the difficult depression years, was drafted into the Army during World War II and slugged his way through Italy in a campaign that eventually saw him trapped at Anzio in a three-month stalemated battle with German forces. Despite these life events, or perhaps because of them, Tom maintained a love for life and a distinct connection with children and underprivileged individuals. The original fairy tale I wrote while working in Lithuania. My memories of Tom inspired the story and serve as the basis for this story.
