12 cm x 12 cm x 12 mm. Limited edition, number 22 of 30 copies signed by Robson. Four lastercut panels on black card stock between two boards in patterned cloth, with instruction tri-fold for displaying the artist's book in a cube or an accordion, all housed in a signed and numbered tray and sleeve. A very nice, clean copy with limited, if any, shelfwear. Of the book, Robson writes: "'Vasilisa and the Witch’s Fire' depicts a scene from the Russian fairytale Vasilisa the Beautiful, a story that sees its heroine Vasilisa overcome the obstacles put before her by the witch Baba Yaga. . . . The lasercut booklet illustrates the heroine's escape home across the forest at night, armed with a mysterious glowing skull. It's an eerie tale that has not left my imagination since I read the tale as a child." A remarkable artist's book.
