August / September 2009

Best Wishes


Wingin'It proudly presents our first signed and numbered limited edition release. The perfect gift to yourself or a fellow book arts lover, Volume 3, Number 7 contains three books in a box. Inside you'll find two collector quality hand bound volumes:

1) Wishing - Rituals for Realizing
4-1/4" x 5-1/2", 14 page saddle stitched with gold embroidery floss. This illustrated exploration of international wishing rituals features a cut out, reveal, or appliqué on every page. The center spread opens on a pop up butterfly, while the final page is filled with pull tab transformation that changes a black horse to white. The hand cut details and clever layout will delight and amaze you.

2) If Wishes Were Horses

4-3/8" x 5-5/8" 28 page stitched and glued self covered treatise explains 9 steps to help move you beyond mere wishful thinking to get the most out of life. Illustrated with cartoons by renowned British artist W. Heath Robinson, this tiny tome includes quotes from John Gardner, a Z-fold pullout panel and decorated end papers.

The third "book" in the set is a do-it-yourself kit complete with instructions, binding floss, and all materials needed to replicate your own copy of Wishing - Rituals for Realizing. Assemble the book to give as a gift or present the entire boxed set. Either way, a greeting card and two gift tags are included with our Best Wishes.

Written and designed by Jaki Ernst, the limited edition of 200 sets are signed and numbered, and done in black ink using digital and offset printing on Harvest Yellow text and cover and Via Vellum Tan 80# cover. Appliqués printed in black ink on white bond add visual punch.
