Summary
A stunningly presented modern-day fable from world-renowned talent Oliver Jeffers. There was once a man who believed he owned everything and set out to survey what was his. You are mine, Fausto said to the flower, the sheep and the mountain, and they bowed before him. But they were not enough for Fausto, so he conquered a boat and set off to claim the sea. Working for the first time in traditional lithography, world-renowned talent, Oliver Jeffers, combines spectacular art with powerful prose, hand printed using vintage letterpress blocks, to create a poignant modern-day fable to touch the hearts of adults and children alike
