The deep purple goatskin was selected as a traditional regal hue to honor the author while elements of red symbolize leadership. The warm natural tones of the cork is harmonious with the color tones of the printed paper cover of the book, visually connecting the cover with the text block. Silk headbands in purple and dark gold continue the color scheme. In homage to the author's origins, the endpapers are Cockerell marbled paper from England.
