Writing to the darker side of life






A beautifully evocative book to hold; deep brown suede, tending to mulberry; stitching picked like ribs and spine; torn and jagged edging, wrapped around with soft brown leather. Pick it up and hear a sound - clipping, pointed, skeletal - nib, bone, metal - chained to book. Dense textured paper folds out like wings; wax covers surface; fragile ribbon binds it all. Keep a soul, in dark and light, written here.
