A5 - 360 pages. Black cow leather. Main feature is a large hand cast pewter pentagram painted in metallic blue, green and purple with gold sparkles. Four ornate pewter corners on the front cover and a hand carved pewter scroll on the spine. Text carved into the pewter scroll is the Wiccan Rede "AN' IT HARM NONE DO WHAT YE WILL".
   Sterling silver lockable wire clasp with +/- Ankh design. Sterling silver padlock is engraved with a pentagram to work as a protective ward for the book. The lock opens with a hardened sterling silver ankh key hand carved from a single piece of silver plate - the key was made to be worn as an earring.
   This book is half the size and half the number of pages of the original Kiankha book. The name Kiankha (ki-ankh-a) comes from KI, the life force and also a Sumerian Earth goddess, ANKH, the Egyptian hieroglyph for life and KA, the Egyptian equivalent of the soul or spirit.
