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

which means "Dragon of the four winds" in Sindarin,
the language spoken by Tolkien's Grey Elves in the Lord of the
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.
