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.

with extended leather flap, closes with handmade thonging that
wraps around book four times. Hand carved and painted design.
Sewn in French style with three reinforcing ribbons. Five ridges
on spine. Pen holder located inside front flap. Gold tassled satin
ribbon bookmark. Gold elephant hide endpapers.
