The book would be rounded and backed and bound in a full dark red goatskin following the French technique, to highlight the importance of restoration in the conservation of books. The front and back covers will have an indented rectangular space covered with inlaid lacunose mat representing the joining and meshing of pieces of leather, usually required in the restoration of books. Both the front and back cover will have a series of parallel indented straight lines representing the various straightforward requirements for returning the book to its original elegance. The headbands will be sewn with three different color threads and the interior of the covers will be dressed in an edge-to-edge doublure. The book will be housed in a linen covered clam shell case.
