The Green Beads

I always enjoyed The Green Beads, in part for its stilted language and also for the fact that one of the main characters is repeatedly referred to as "a disturbed person". The artwork in this book subtly goes from daylight to darkest night without losing definition in the crosshatching.

The Green Beads was published in 1978 by the Albondocani Press. It is bound in illustrated wrappers in a signed, limited edition of 400 numbered copies, and 26 (A to Z) lettered copies. The story is reprinted in Amphigorey Also. I am showing copies H/26 and 106/400.
