BEAUTIFUL BOUND LIMITED EDITION BOOK IN PRESENTATION CASE

The transformation of this particular works is a beauty to behold, cocooned in its special skin of leather. Bound using Oasis goat’s leather, graphite and edge gilding, and kept in a suede and leather presentation case. Images on the case and the book cover have been created with leather and white leather strip inlay.
