A Pocket Full of Change is the story of a boy who goes out one day on his bicycle with a pocket full of coins, and puts them one by one on railroad tracks to be run over by trains. It is told in rhymes, set in movable type, and illustrated with 20 original, multi-color woodcut prints.
A Pocket Full of Change: Parent Teacher Nanny Edition is a subset of the original edition of A Pocket Full of Change, a parody of the teacher’s guides commonly published to go with elementary school textbooks. It includes footnotes, which offer additional information and commentary relevant to the text, including the terminology, history of coins, the value of money, relevant laws, the setting, and the arc of the story. The notes and questions are cast in metal type on a linotype machine at Madison Press in Lakewood, Ohio.
Exhibited with the complete individual prints at Tregoning & Co. Gallery, Cleveland.
