This book is still in the original publishers shrinkwrap. Bluebeard is Kurt Vonnegut's classic novel from 1985. It resurrects the character Rabo Karabekian from 'Breakfast of Champions". The novel exudes the multi-faceted wit and defiant literary style of this most creative writer. Thematically the book pokes fun at the modern concept of art-for-investment. It also characterizes humankind's penchant for the passionate creation and the systematic destruction of Love and Beauty. This beautiful book is bound in full-tooled gray leather with satin moiré endpapers, satin ribbon bookmark and 22kt gold on the spine. Beautiful gilt designs ornament the front as well as the back boards. The paper was made especially for this edition. The leather was cut entirely by hand. It includes a certificate of authenticity and a 4x6 card laid in with biographical information as well as a few words about the book itself. Published by Easton Press it is a volume of heirloom quality and will be treasured for generations to come. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
