 PEDAUQUE  by Prue Batten

2 3/4" x 2 1/4", 59 pages, 10 illustrations

In this lovely story-within-a-story by Australian writer Prue Batten, a medieval troubadour tells his master's young son a legend of Occitan: A queen suspected of sorcery and shape-changing and how she was vindicated.  The tale is illustrated with historiated initials drawn from medieval manuscripts.

This the sixth book Prue and I have published together, and I've marked the event with an illustration opposite the title page with a Latin motto including both our names.

The binding is an embroidered fabric of gold, turquoise, and dark blue, with a twisted ribbon spine that echoes the illustrations inside.
