... and the last day of work, although the book must still rest in the press for a few days before going away to its new home.
Title is hand written - in translation, "Byzantine Manuscripts in Collections from Bucharest"
Detail of the custom handmade brass book-clasps and painted edges
On the front cover, a small detail of a bestiary. Painting is done in egg tempera on golden leaf and varnished.
There are 15 blank page inserts with hand writing or hand painted decorative details on small pieces of handmade paper
Tomorrow I'll be back with photos of the book Jacek made for me. It's a gem.
