This Is My Wish For You - Mini

  • By Charles Snell
$8.95
For many years customers have requested smaller, less expensive editions of our most popular gift titles and we are happy to announce that we have obliged. A small book has a special charm; it may be slipped into a pocket or a purse with ease. Small Blessings will make welcome gifts for those occasions when a small but lovely token is appropriate.

Frequently one wishes to say to another, "I wish you the best of everything." This book delivers this message with power and sincerity. Welleran Poltarnees has taken Snell's text and selected a painting or illustration for each wish, giving additional life to an already marvelous text.

We assert, without exaggeration, that this is the nearly perfect gift book.

This is a book created to be given. At its center is a poem by Charles Snell which was written for, and published in, 1914 as a small gift book. In it the giver, in a series of concrete images, extends the recipient many good wishes.
In our volume, Snell's words are presented within borders made by Daniel Maclise for a book entitled Moore's Irish Melodies, published in 1846. We have selected images to accompany each wish. These are made by a great variety of painters and illustrators, and range over more than 150 years.

This Is My Wish for You is in the tradition of ancient blessings, in which one tries, through the power of language, to throw a mantle of protection and beneficence over the receiver.
