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 - 312 pages. Hand dyed turquoise and navy-blue
kangaroo leather. Main feature is a hand sculpted snow dragon
in ice blue and white with wings outstretched, aloft in the night
sky with stars reflected in the lake below.
Sterling silver lockable wire clasp with stylised
dragon wing design and ring-wire gates. Sterling silver padlock
is engraved with SC - the initials of the owner of the book. The
lock opens with a sterling silver sun/moon folding key hand carved
from three layers of 1mm silver plate - the key can be hidden
away inside the disc and worn as a pendant.
The book is sewn in French style with two reinforcing
ribbons and spinal insert. Red headbands. Sky blue satin bookmark
with straight diagonal cut. Blue linen endpapers. The stars in
the background are based on NGC 300 - a Milky-Way-like galaxy
