This little pocket book has been bound in a Scottish deep brown calfskin leather with blind and gold tooling to the front and rear covers. The leather for the covers, already beautiful will age wonderfully.
Blind tooling is a pattern created with heated brass tools in the same way as gold tooling but where no gold leaf is used. This leaves a permanent embossed pattern, in this instance a border with a diamond within which contains a beautiful little golden thistle.
The foredges have been sprinkled in red.
Size - 95 x 145 mm, 3 3/4 x 5 3/4 x 3/4 inches
