'Bees in Amber'

over christmas I was looking through a few old treasures that my mum has hidden away and one of them is this book 'Bees in Amber' by John Oxenham. It contains poems and verses that have a liturgical quality to them: devout, wordy and earnest but exquisitely presented.

I love the illustrations of bees all over the inlay papers and the book itself appears to be printed with metal type, there is a very slight indent visible in the letter-forms.
