Full terracota goatskin, green goatskin doublures, and Cave paper endpapers. The four books of the text are represented by the four pages of different colored green goatskin onlays circling in and surrounding the dusting of gold which represents the final book's emphasis on the individual's union with Christ through the Sacrament or Holy Communion. These leaves tooled in gold to loosely reflect the style of tooling popular in France at the time of the publication of the text. Title and author tooled in blind along the fore-edge of both the front and back boards. Leaves on doublures are floating down and towards the text taking the reader into the book. My hope is to combine old and modern imagery using both traditional and recent developments in design binding.
