The Perfect Christmas Present for the Pysanka Lover: About the Pysanka - It Is Written! A Bibliography by Joan Brander

If you’re wondering which pysanka book to give as a Christmas present this year, this bibliography has an extensive list of resources. It’s one you’ll surely want to add to your own collection, so you may need to buy 2!

Check out this link to our Pysanka Power Video Clip published on our Baba's Beeswax YouTube Channel for a book preview that flips through the pages:

This valuable resource is authored by our very own Joan Brander, and we were proud and honoured to publish it for her.

It is a unique compilation of more than 250 books, periodicals and audiovisual titles. When Joan discovered that she could not find a published bibliography on pysanky she set about to write her own. The result is "About the Pysanka—It Is Written! A Bibliography by Joan Brander". Chapters include pysanky books, children’s books, newsletters, articles, audio-visual, chronological index and author index. The book also includes 72 colour plates.

The publishing and cataloguing of this first of-its-kind book garnered a place for "pysanky" in the bibliography class of the Library of Congress headings - a precedent setting development.

Just a note that the digital and eBook versions have 38 more colour plates than does the print version.
