The Juggler of Our Lady (1977)


The Juggler of Our Lady
an old and of't told tale
The Rose Valley Press
Moylan, PA
(c)1977

One of my greatest pleasures of this entire pursuit is going to bookstores in places I have never been to before and taking some of their regional "wares" with me, like this tiny gem. I found it in a bookstore in Ardmore, PA close to the Rose Valley named in the Press. The Illustrator, Gus Uhlmann, seems to have been well known in the region. This tiny tiny was letter pressed with colored illustrations by Mr. Uhlmann. It's a most handsome book indeed. Glad to have it.

and yet you seem to say nothing about the poetry itself. A "very handsome book indeed"......are you a poet or are you a graphic designer?
