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.
A5 - 624 pages (oversize). Hand dyed green kangaroo
leather with pewter dragonfly on carved and painted gold bullrush/cattail
design. The word "Anelftu" is carved above the dragonfly
and a seven-pointed faerie star below. The four ornate sterling
silver book corners were inspired by the Celestial
Dragon clasp and resemble bugs which tie in with the dragonfly
design. The spine features a seven-pointed faerie star
and two bullrush designs with a small flying dragonfly.
The book is sewn in French style with two reinforcing
ribbons, Oxford hollow back and spinal insert. Special gold headbands.
Silver satin tasselled bookmark. Green and cream abaca endpapers
(cream side dominant).
