Old letters

The inner journey is an important aspect of the tale; the whole story may be read as a metaphorical description of the process of self realization, to be recognized or to add thrill, so far notably in the first and the last chapters of the first book;

Written in King's English, before it became the present Queen's English, the language in the tale is kept in a plain wording with original sayings, proverbs, songs, rhymes, puns, and names, to appear as a language with the freshness of an early, formative stage; and it is well suited for reading out, to both adults and large children;

Flap, flap

The soft transitions of the colours and the flaps enables one long cover story in hoofprints; the section sewing ensures durability for years of use; the outer frame of each book has the same proportions when closed and open, and the golden section appears both in the single page and in the full opening; the classical appearance is enhanced by the choice of typeface and the careful imposition; along with the soft cover, the choice of paper makes the book open itself to the reader, and with a sufficient inner margin it may be read without breaking its spine; each book is foiled, stressing the gift aspect and enabling the reader to enjoy the freshness and fragrance of the book, as if it were handed over by the printer; and the foil carries the bar code to be thrown away with it, leaving the cover undisturbed.
