THE GRAVEL WALK takes a light-hearted stroll, twisting and turning through the pages of this folded book. The 18th century sonnet by William Mason follws a path throuh a garden of three dozen different printer's flowers. Any wrong turn along the path (if you turn the page the wrong way) will leed to a pattern of gravel and leaves sprayed on the reserse of the sheet. Fun to read and lovely to look at. Item #7658
