Full leather binding in natural goatskin with 77 back-pared onlays in 23 different colours. The doublures are also covered in natural goatskin
so the lively colours are given space to breathe. The walls of the box are covered in 6 different colours and the spine of the box is titled
in assorted colours to reflect the colours inside.
Sonia Delaunay was fascinated by colour and she saw it as a truly 'universal' expressive language. The design of the binding comes from the playful
arrangement of the vibrant colours and abstract shapes of Delaunay's original images.
