A4 - 424 pages (212 sheets). Hand dyed and polished kangaroo leather finished in purple Oxblood. Hand carved Celtic knotwork leaf designs in each corner, painted gold. Front flap opens to reveal 'The path for me is the path in me' carved in gold letters on inside cover. Two small hand carved Triquetra symbols on the cover and one on the spine.
   The Triquetra (or Triqueta) was made famous by the TV series 'Charmed' and is a Celtic symbol of the triple Goddess (maid, mother, and crone). It can also represent mind, body, and soul, as well as the three domains of Earth - land, sea, and sky. A circle binds the three together as one.
   The term "Quinta Essentia" refers to the fifth element (besides fire, water, earth and air) which permeates all of nature and is the substance composing the celestial bodies - the stuff of stars that links everything together - the soul of the universe. The quintessence is the finest or best of any substance, which is a fitting description for the carved leather range of Witches Wardrobe books.
   The book is post bound to allow pages to be removed for printing a few pages at a time and then returned. The main cover front, back and spine are made from one continuous piece of leather which fastens together with four brass posts (Chicago screws). Antique key bookmark anchored to the cover. Rose elephant hide endpapers.
