Summary
"To qualify for inclusion, each piece had to function like a book, but a number of the works also curl, hang, or swirl. While there are rectangular volumes, you'll find others that are circular, shaped like a house, and in completely abstract forms that will delight the eyes and imagination. Fine craftsmanship, of course, was another consideration and is evident in this collection, whether it's a finely tooled leather cover embellished with traditional gold leaf lettering or an exotic Ethiopian binding where a netting of waxed linen weaves together to create a show-stopping open spine. The content varies as well. Some of the pages are blank, while others contain elaborate, content-driven narratives"--Cover flaps
