Christmas Booklets from The Printery

The Printery has a slew of holiday booklets that would make great gifts for friends or family (or for yourself). The latest addition to their list of Christmas booklets is O. Henry's Gift of the Magi:
A true Christmas classic about a young, poor, and foolish (or were they?) couple who sacrificed for each other their greatest treasures. This 24-page booklet has been handset in Bulmer types, with a sprinkling of Parsons and Friar for ‘seasoning.’ It is printed in four colors on Arches Rives, a French mould-made sheet, and sewn into marbled paper wrappers. The title page ornament is hand colored. The original illustrations are by Steve Edwards. $27.50
