Bat Album

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.

"How many bats can you find?"

A4+ - 100 sheets. Massive plain black prisma paper photo album with glassine inserts. Hand dyed and polished kangaroo leather finished in black and a mixture of blues (Light Blue, Navy Blue and Turquoise). The leather cover features an intricately hand-carved silhouette of tree branches with hanging fruit bats set against a deep blue sky. One bat has already taken flight and can be seen against a bright glow in the sky - perhaps the moon.
   Handmade pewter flying foxes decorate the corners and a reversible hanging flying fox panel is situated on the left, again hand carved from pewter.
    This album was made specifically for someone who works with bats both at the zoo and as part of the Wildlife Information & Rescue Service (WIRES).
   The album is sewn in French style with three reinforcing ribbons. Oxford hollow back, revolutionary black headbands. Black prisma endpapers.
