Jase's Books

 Home >> Unique Commissioned Works >> Haggis


Here is the real treasure of imagination - books that people wished into existence, every one unique, every one magical. Some of these books are made from specialised materials such as emu leather (to look like dragon scales), real silver, amber, keys, feathers, dreams.


A4 - 256 pages. Halfbound black suede with MacDonald of Glencoe tartan (red with black and yellow stripes). Oxford hollow back, red headbands inside binding, reinforced board cover. French joint ensures easy opening. Three interlocking silver triangles form the Valnott or Key to Valhalla, with a taxidermist's glass crocodile eye watching from the centre. Parchment inside, sewn in French style with four reinforcing ribbons. Buff parchment endpapers. Dedication inside reads:

Dedicated... In the Year of our Lord 1314, patriots of Scotland, starving and outnumbered, charged the fields of Bannockburn. They fought like warrior poets. They fought like Scotsmen... And won their freedom forever...

Those of the satru religion who have dedicated their lives to Odin favour the Valnott. The Valnott or " death knot ", the triple triangle shown above, is one of Odin's symbols. Odin's followers have a tendency to die violently.

Commission: Mark Winton 08 Nov 1996 - 23 Dec 1996
