Full leather binding in navy blue goatskin with hand tooling in gold and metallic shades with 7 highlight colours. Ultra flatback.
Navy blue leather joints and doublures. Leather headbands with silk highlights in gold. The endpaper is printed on Somerset Book Soft White,
which matches the colour of the handmade paper. The gradation of colours has been hand inked and printed using a linoleum block.
It contains the opening of the Genesis creation narrative and the book is letterpress printed in red and black by the notable Doves Press.
Design and colour are to represent symbolic beginnings. Three different sized dots (0.8, 1.0, 1.2mm) have been used to create the feeling
of opening and bursting on the cover. The colours in the endpapers are inspired by the hues found in the dawn and dusk.
