Phillip Pullman - A Outrance

What to get for Christmas for the book lover with everything? The Oak Tree Fine Press have released a limited edition of an excerpt from Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman, A Outrance. The book tells the story of how the rightful bear-king Iorek Byrnison regained his throne through a fight to the death with the false usurper Iofur Raknison. It is limited to only two hundred and sixty five copies and features original woodcut illustrations and features original woodcut illustrations by Chris Daunt, Harry Brockway and Andy English. The book is available in three different editions, including fifteen individual hand bound copies with unique bindings by some of the world’s leading designers, which were recently exhibited at Oxford University’s Bodleian Library. As with all Oak Tree Press editions, the profits will support children in Africa with HIV. Highly recommended both as a book and a cause.
