Bound in parchment over boards using the "floating boards" method. Parchment backed with Japanese hanako paper which is also used for the flyleaves and headbands. Sewing tapes in parchment, visible through groove. Hand tooled cover design and title on spine in pale gold. The tooling on the cover envelops the natural markings of parchment. The use of modern papers throughout brings a nice mix with the more historical method of parchment covering. Bound in 2014 and housed in a custom clamshell box.
