“Who in the world am I? Ah, that’s the great puzzle.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
Meet Andy Malcolm and George Walker in their Toronto print studio, talking about their unique handmade limited-edition books. With over countless titles in print relating to Lewis Carroll, you’ll hear their stories of rag paper and wood blocks covered in ink and how this printing process grows into a finely crafted book. Making books by hand in editions of 42 (for reasons only Mr. Charles Dodgson can explain), proves beyond any doubt that these friends are truly struck by madness that can only be equaled by the purchase of railway shares and participation in a perpetual tea-time. Whatever they may say, you are in for a frabjous visit!
