A lavishly illustrated work, characteristic of Parrish’s style. Parrish executed the twenty-six paintings for The Knave of Hearts “within three years, and the book, a sumptuous production, was published on October 2, 1925. The large format … that Parrish had originally suggested was used, and the illustrations, printed in rich colors on heavy, coated paper, were the highest-quality reproductions that could be had” (Ludwig).
