Description is exactly "Terra cotta Harmatan goatskin binding. Hand-decorated paste endsheets with a leather joint. Decorated with leather onlays, acrylic paint, colored foil, and gold tooling. The cross design is based on Wait's own artwork. The square crosses are the precursor to the well-known form of the Christian cross. The colors used are the universal four colors of the world: blue, black, white (yellow), and red. The small geometric signs are other universal world symbols. These symbols were used extensively in church decoration, especially in the Middle Ages. Bound in 2002."
