The Mysteries of Harris Burdick: Portfolio Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since its publication in 1984, The Mysteries of Harris Burdick has stimulated the minds of readers of all ages and backgrounds. Now the original fourteen drawings are available in a large portfolio edition of loose sheets. In addition, a newly discovered fifteenth drawing, titled The Youngest Magician, has been added, as well as an updated introduction by the author. The puzzles of these mysterious drawings will be even more provocative because of the larger size and the exceptional printing quality. For the first time, the drawings can be shared with groups or displayed singly. The Mysteries of Harris Burdick was a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of 1984.

Synopsis:

Enigmatic drawings invite the reader to invent his or her own stories to explain each scene.

Synopsis:

Fourteen black-and-white drawings, each accompanied by a title and a caption, entice readers to make up his or her own story.
