The five small books inside the wrap around cover contain lines drawn with rubbed ink on Japanese calligraphy paper. The whole thing is one big experiment: The ink was new to me as the calligraphy brush and the paper I used. The binding structure was not completely new, but I followed a more meticulous traditional technique that was new to me in its many details. The wrapper, again comes from the same source and was new to me.
I actually made two for the books, the one shown is the one I prefer. The line visible on the white book cloth is printed on. (For the other cover it was hand-drawn.)
