Clifford Harper illustrates John Gallas's ballad poem about the life and times of the Italian anarchist Santo Caserio; a baker who assassinated the French President, a little man who tried to change things and got his head chopped off. The drawings are an homage to the work of Frans Masereel and perfectly accompany the ballad verse. Agraphia is Harper's own publishing imprint, and as you'd expect, the books are exquisitely designed, illustrated and printed. Includes a biographical sketch of Caserio by Harper.
