Blue Water Photo 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.
A4+ - 80 pages. Dry mount photo album with acid
free black pages and pergamin interleaves. Hand dyed and polished
kangaroo leather finished in Navy Blue, Turquoise and iridescent
Topaz to catch the light. The dye effects represent the sunlight
shining on the surface of the ocean and streaming into the depths

The album features three heavy embossed straps on the spine, the
long middle strap surfacing through the cover and closing the
album with a length of black plaited thonging wound around a handmade
pewter starfish. A silver wave border has been carved around the
