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 - 256 pages. Full bound in black suede. Oxford
hollow back, red headbands, reinforced split-board cover. French
joint ensures easy opening. Large silver pentagram enclosed by two
circles dominates the cover with crescent moon and four-pointed
star in top right and again in bottom left corners. Parchment inside,
sewn in French style with four reinforcing ribbons. The name 'Iolena'
is a combination of 'dawn cloud' and the moon, befitting the stars
and moon on the cover, as well as being born on the eve of a new
year. Buff parchment endpapers.
