Book 1 in a series of 3 hand-made books i created for my book arts final this previous semester.

The Illustration is of Amit (my golem seen in other posts) and Ahava, his companion.

The covers are made from luan, painting black and partially covered with lined fabric.

The binding style is one I invented called girdle binding, based on coptic binding.
