Elemental Dragon II

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+ - 720 pages. Hand dyed black kangaroo leather with embossed dragon pentagram design and border. A companion volume to the original Elemental Dragon (spells and rituals), this robust book will travel a more personal journey, gathering knowledge along the way.
   My first experiment with embossed leather, the raised dragon and border design are made from three layers of carved leather and an assortment of new techniques to create a rich 3-D effect. The dragon and border are subtly 'lit' with gold that is visible from some angles and invisible from others. The gold text on the pentacle reads "ALMUG UIN CANAD GWAEW" which means "Dragon of the four winds" in Sindarin, the language spoken by Tolkien's Grey Elves in the Lord of the Rings.
   The book is sewn in French style with four reinforcing ribbons, Oxford hollow back and spinal insert. Five ridges on spine outlined in gold. Special gold headbands. Gold satin tasselled bookmark. Black gold milano endpapers.
Cover: 278mm x 343mm H (10.94 x 13.50in).
Page: 254mm x 330mm H (10 x 13in). Weight: 3.56kg (7.85lb).
