(Tudor, Tasha)

Hand-painted movable valentine, sent by "Sparrow Post"

Tudor, Tasha (illus.)

(Marlboro, VT: Tasha Tudor, n.d.). Handmade heart-shaped card, with a fluttering heart on the front. It opens to an innovative movable crow nested among hearts in a tree. The crow, with confidence on par with his sly skill, declares opposite that "I'm a thief! And your heart is what I want." A particularly clever missive sent via Tudor's "Sparrow Post," and emblematic of her lifelong love of birds. At one point she kept forty-one, including finches, canaries, a cockatiel, doves, nightingales, and gray parrots. Fine, with a pinhole suggesting the recipient's particular fondness for the illustration. (1 1/16 by 1 1/16; 28x28mm). Item #30116
