The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran
This is also a quarter bound leather case binding. Bound in goat skin from the Pergamena tannery in upstate NY. The paper is another one of mine from the marbling workshop we did. The top edge is decorated with graphite. This book is for sale. Please let me know if you are interested
