This book is still in the original publishers shrinkwrap. Unlike most of the wonderful Kurt Vonnegut titles A Man Without a Country is a collection of essays and articles rather than a novel. But the writing is Vonnegut at his visionary best. The book affords the reader an open look into Vonnegut's views on life, art, politics, and the human condition at the outset of the 21st century. This should be of interest to all of Mr. Vonnegut's readers because we get to see how his ideas affect his writing. The book is also liberally illustrated with artwork by the author throughout, adding to the artistic portrait of this wonderful and most creative writer. This beautiful book is bound in full-tooled deep blue leather with satin moiré endpapers, satin ribbon bookmark and 22kt gold on the spine. Beautiful gilt designs ornament the front as well as the back boards. The paper was made especially for this edition. The leather was cut entirely by hand. It includes a certificate of authenticity and a 4x6 card laid in with biographical information as well as a few words about the book itself. Published by Easton Press it is a volume of heirloom quality and will be treasured for generations to come. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
