Three board structure with two-piece leather covering (one is suede to create a pictorial sunset). Inlaid agate, various green leather onlays and ascona line onlays were added in reds and oranges. There is onlay titling on the spine. The riverboat is inlaid in pyrographed wood veneer, with a graphite gauffered edge, leather headband, and hinges. Included is a drop-spine box with a Plexiglas tray bottom allowing the viewer to look into the building's "sunset" from a pyrographed wood veneer steamboat deck.
