The Way Things Are, a fable written & Illustrated by Debi Knight Kennedy, Alaskan author, Scout book, Block prints, Small Gift Book, Poetry


I spent the winter designing, cutting and printing the block prints to illustrate "The Way Things Are", a fable that came to me while I lay in bed one morning.

It is a tidy little package, 32 pages, 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". I am now printing myself at my home studio.

Just right to slip into a gift card or into your own pocket. It will come to you in a matching craft envelope.
