U is for Underhill

Graphic Design, Alphabooks

 

 
Driving Horse-Drawn Carriages for Pleasure: The Classic Illustrated Guide to Coaching, Harnessing, Stabling, etc.
Francis T. Underhill
Dover 1989/2014
Originally published in 1897, back when carriages were the cars, trucks, & buses of the day. Recommended by Robin Bledsoe, Bookseller. For serious carriage enthusiasts out there, Bledsoe has, or had, a collector’s copy with with a gilt-stamped, suede cover. From the price, I’m assuming it’s the original, not the Dover reprint.
Non-fiction
Inkscape, spirals

 

On an unrelated note, do any of you read the author’s name & NOT think of Frodo dancing on a table at The Prancing Pony?

Thank you for reading,
Katherine Walcott
