For many years customers have requested smaller, less expensive editions of our most popular gift titles and we are happy to announce that we have obliged. A small book has a special charm; it may be slipped into a pocket or a purse with ease. Small Blessings will make welcome gifts for those occasions when a small but lovely token is appropriate. They would also be charming used as an elaborate form of gift-tag, included in a gift basket, or even slipped among the stems of a floral bouquet. A Baby Blessing welcomes a new baby to the world. A Birthday Blessing performs the same function as a birthday card but with much more depth. A House Blessing is intended as a gift for those who have purchased a new home. This is My Wish for You — long our bestselling title — bestows the best of everything to its recipient.
From the Inside Flap
This a book created to be given. At its center is a poem by Charles Snell which was written for and published in, 1914 as a small gift book. In it the giver, in a series of concrete images, extends the recipient many good wishes.
In our volume, Snell’s words are presented within borders made by Daniel Maclise for a book entitled Moore’s Irish Melodies, published in 1846.
We have selected images to accompany each wish. These are made by a great variety of painters and illustrators, and range over more than 150 years.
This Is My Wish for You is in the tradition of ancient blessings, in which one tries, through the power of language, to throw a mantle of protection and beneficence over the receiver. –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
