The Woe Shirt: Caribbean folk tales

Lincoln: Penmaen Press, Ltd, 1980. Hardcover. 62p., b&w illustrations (photographs of what look like soft sculptures), green story titles throughout, a very good limited first edition letterpress run done by Penmen Press, #90/100 copies this copy signed by Barton and Norman, in green half-cloth over decorative boards in the trade edition dj.

Barton was a Trinidadian folklorist. Of the limited edition Howard Norman signed all 100 and McCurdy signed only 44. The illustrator signed about 70 (he missed this one) The dj is apparently taken from one of the trade hardcovers as it has the trade ISBN on the flap and the limited was published without a dj.
