Fine in Fine jacket. Signed first edition/first printing of the Canadian edition, which followed the Australian edition. Basis for the 2011 Oscar-winning short animated film of the same title. Signed "Best Wishes! Shaun Tan" under the author's custom pictorial stamp for "The Federal Department of Odds & Ends" with the motto "sweepus underum carpetae" directly to the page facing the title page. We love this hilarious and moving account of a regular day at the beach and the awesome strangeness of the world we may or may not notice as it goes about its business. All of our first editions are first printings unless otherwise noted. Dustwrappers are protected with clear archival wraps and we pack each book like it's a Tiffany egg.
