The House of Pomegranates. Dublin: Little Oak Fine Bindery, 2021. Bound in hand tooled genuine gold leaf goatskin, with real wood paper boards, all edges in gilt & housed in matching slipcase.

Featuring Illustrations in colour by Jessie M. King in her distinctive style creating a fairy-tale feel with the use of dotted lines, in watercolour & black and white.

Wilde’s second collection of fairy tales, originally published in 1891, following The Happy Prince in 1888. The volume includes The Young King, The Birthday of the Infanta, and The Star-Child. While these stories are clearly intended for a younger audience, Wilde, with typical sardonic quip declared that the stories were ‘intended neither for the British child nor the British public.’

A fine example of the work from Little Oak Fine Bindings, each edition is unique and bound to the highest craftsmanship
