    TenTallTalesCover

    “Ten Tall Tales” is new take on the time-honored tradition of the American tall tale. Written and illustrated by Chet Phillips and hand bound by Julie Sullivan of Dancing Cat Bindery. This mighty tall volume mirrors the idea of outlandish tales with its unusual 6.5″ x 14.5″ size. Bound in blue book cloth with cut out title revealing a rich textured blue paper beneath. Surrounding the title area are silver foiled stamped stars. In addition to the characters, writing and hand bound richness, each book includes an original, hand drawn sketch on the inside front cover.

    Stories and characters include: a mythical Jackalope and his horned toad sidekick, a cosmic repairman, the sharpshooting monkey that saved the world, a Luchador’s legendary match with death, the human Ouija board, the “Cryptid Whisperer,” a valiant Victorian lady that walked among the Old Ones, an odd man in a bird suit, a fox that talked his way to immortality and a feline pirate with an addiction to catnip.

    Each card measures approx. 2″ x  3.75″ with the character’s portrait, name, team name, number, and field position in Japanese on the front side.

Also on the card backs are English interpretations of the character’s name, nickname, team and field position with a few player stats. 40 cards in all that includes 36 player cards and 4 team cards.
