PINTAURO, Joseph. The Rainbow Box: The Rabbit Box, the Peace Box, the Magic Box, and A Box of Sun

(New York, NY): Harper & Row, 1970. First edition. 12mo. Four volumes. A complete set of Pintauro’s imaginative children’s books for adults. Each volume, illustrated by Norman Laliberté, is dedicated to a specific theme; time, love, peace and magic. Originally published as a caustic and comic response to the ’60s era concerns, including the Vietnam War the volumes are full of playful and poignant fragmentary meditations on love, loss, war, peace, loneliness, and communion and as such provide an insightful commentary on the emotional kaleidoscope of life. This set lacking the poster and original printed boxed, instead housed in a worn clear plastic case with splitting at corners. All volumes in very good condition.
