The client wished to commission a unique volume of a manuscript as a gift to the author. The design and details of the bound book are full of symbology relating to both the gift giver and the recipient, interwoven with the theme of the manuscript. Peculiarly, the powerful story contained in these covers brought the completed book to life in a poignant way, leading it through an adventure across continents and adding its own spice to the symbology of this book – and thus making it all the more unique to all parties involved. Books indeed can be powerful and incredible in themselves.
