"Capricious Mushrooms" was written by John Hine. The title page reads, "Capricious Mushrooms being a description of a very special variety of inhabited mushrooms and the mushpeople that live in them, depicted in eight metal sculptures by Christopher Lawrence and known as: Christopher Lawrence Mushrooms".
The book was published in 1988 and this copy was signed by the author, "To Benbob Every word is true, I promise 27 April 1990".
The book contains eight color photographs of Christopher Lawrence's mushrooms each with a velum overlay so that you can see both the interior and exterior of the mushroom. Dotted throughout are illustrations by Brian Lee, Michele Beaufoy and John Robbins.
This vintage book has brown cloth boards with an illustrated paste-down title and gilt title to spine. It has marbled endpapers and is in very good vintage condition with some very minor bumping at the cover's corners.
A sweet book for the child in everyone.
