About this Item

No one satisfies that itch for kitsch as well as Lawson Wood! 37 by 21 cm. 13 leaves -- title page and leaf for each month of the year. Anthropomorphic chimpanzees at a bank, on a swing getting weighed, in a maternity ward, watching television, gardening, etc. Lawson Wood is the Norman Rockwell of the chimp world. Another close kinship would be with the canine artist extraordinaire, C. M. Coolidge, roughly a contemporary and also an artist who worked for Brown & Bigelow. His smoothly rendered, colorful fantasies are certain to produce a grin in even the most hardened cynic. Through chimps Wood pokes fun at human busy-ness, pretensions, vulgarities and excesses. The pictorials are the greater part of each page, amounting to two thirds of it. Wood was an English illustrator and painter known also for his humorous takes on dinosaurs, cavemen, policemen and other animals. Light wear and soiling to the cover. Bookseller Inventory # 004002

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
