The Ballad of the Red Shoes is a collaborative project between Andrew Bird and his mother, Beth Bird, who is a printmaker. In its original printing in 2001, the artwork consisted of an accordion folded set of prints illustrating a story tucked inside a sturdy printed / handpainted chipboard folder. The new package is slightly less deluxe, the artwork is now in a booklet instead of an accordion fold – otherwise, all of the images remain the same. The CD contains 12 minutes worth of instrumental violin pieces.[1]
