Micomicana was published on 22 February 1979 to celebrate the centenary of the birth of Norman Lindsay. This superb edition presents a hitherto unpublished series of Lindsay's most robust and delightful stories, together with over two hundred of the finest pen drawings that this remarkable artist ever made. Every copy has been signed personally by Norman Lindsay's daughter Jane Glad (1920-1999) who is the author of the engaging and informative Introduction.
The Story of Micomicana from the Introduction by Jane Lindsay:
The first publication of Micomicana, ten years after my father's death, seems a fitting way to celebrate his centenary. This book, with its exuberance, humour and spirit of eternal youth, seems to me the quintessence of Norman Lindsay. It is certainly as I remember him.
Norman began writing the stories in the 1920s and in 1952 he wrote:
I've finally managed to complete a work which I started about thirty years ago.
It is fitting that this book was finally published, albeit posthumously.
