Cat's Cradle, (Signed Limited Edition, No. 500 of 500 copies)

Norwalk, Connecticut: Easton Press, 2013. Linmited Edition. Large Octavo. Item #026150

287pp. One of the finest of Easton's limited editions with new illustrations exclusively for this edition by Dennis Lyall, bound in genuine Saderra leather by the Cromwell group of Mamaroneck, New York, the custom slipcase is by Dominion Carton of Brystol, Tennessee. Printed on acid free archival paper. The 2013 review in the New York Times writes that "Cat's Cradle" is an irreverent and often highly entertaining fantasy concerning the playful irresponsibility of nuclear scientists. Like the best of contemporary satire, it is work of a far more engaging and meaningful order than the melodramatic tripe which most critics seem to consider "serious." While a child is playing in the U.S. in 1945, the bomb is dropped in Japan.
