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 - 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.
The book has lined parchment pages and a printed
dedication on the first page (18th Birthday). The book is sewn
in French style with two reinforcing ribbons and spinal insert.
Red headbands. Three red satin ribbon bookmarks with keys. Blue
elephant hide endpapers.
