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.
"If you fell out of a moving car and managed
to land on the book
you'd probably both be fine."
A5 - 312 pages. Black dry kangaroo leather with
extended leather flaps, designed for travelling the hard roads.
Based on the original Aviator
design, this version has extra flaps at the top and bottom plus
a strap at the fore edge of the pages to effectively seal the
book against the elements. The book is reinforced with double
layers of abbrasion-resistant kangaroo leather (16 separate pieces)
and 108 steel rivets. The adaptable cover closes with two internal
D-ring straps and two external hand-stitched leather belts with
polished buckles. The book is sewn in French style with two reinforcing
ribbons and riveted spinal insert. Red headbands. Four ridges
on spine. Pen holder located inside front flap. Black satin tasselled
