I have a first edition of this book and it came with a cover like this made from cloth so you could cut the gnomes out, then sew them and stuff them! Gnomes are never without their caps. They only remove them in the darkness of night, right before bed (and probably when bathing). A gnome receives his/her hat at a young age and uses the same one for his entire lifetime. A really lovely book. Worth Reading, Coffee Tables, Fairies, Book Worth, Gardens Gnomes, Wil Huygens, Rien Poortvliet, Illustration, Gnomes Book
