The text is from a softcover book I disassembled and reassembled as a long stitch binding through a slotted wrapper. Brown quarter leather is sanded kangaroo with handmade book cloth sides. The cotton book cloth is imaginatively silkscreened with good bug guardians. The inside wrapper is covered with sanded brown kangaroo and botanical homemade paper pastedowns. Endpapers are botanical handmade and Hahnemle Gutenberg papers. All signatures are guarded with Japanese kozo sewn onto the wrapper with yellow linen thread. The book title is blind-stamped.
