A French style binding with laced-on boards. The top edge is graphite with hand sewn silk endbands, covered in "coke" gray buffalo leather with onlays of emery paper and aluminum screen. The book would be housed in a matching leather clamshell box. The aluminum screen representing the source of the disappearance is depicted on the back board, dwindling around to the front board. "Goodbye" tooled on the spine, too late to save the river. The design is as "simple" as the age old problem of balancing contemporary needs for dwindling natural resources and preserving those resources for future generations.
