It has often been said, and I can’t disagree,
That there’s no men so tough as our men of the sea.
But two of the toughest, if the rights of it was known,
Were Kenny and Mike who lived in Belleoram.
– from Not a Word of a Lie

Another wildly popular recitation by Dave Paddon. This time Paddon has turned his quirky sense of humour to two brothers who set out to sea to get some fish for supper. On their travels they meet a giant squid, some pirates, Danny Williams and more!

A wonderfully funny tall tale, Not a Word of a Lie sold out its first print run.

The original linocut illustrations are by Duncan Major.

The text was set by hand in Fournier, and letterpress printed at Running the Goat Press.

The text papers were Velké Losiny Moravia, handmade in Czechoslovakia; the endpapers are Mizumata Moss, and the cover papers are Canal paper from St.-Armand in Montréal.
