In medieval symbolism, dragons were often symbolic of apostasy and treachery, but also served as symbols for independence, leadership and strength.
From the middle ages forward, the good qualities of dragons become more prominent. No longer must all dragons be defeated by the hero or saint, some are ready to share their wisdom with human beings and act as companions, friends, and even guardians —roles that parallel those of the angels.

The covers of this book are made from vegetable-tanned cow leather. The leather is produced using time-honored tanning methods. The vegetable tanning process involves the use of natural tannin found in tree bark. Tannin is also the root for the world “tanning”. We hand dye the leather for the covers of each book separately with water-based, non-toxic dyes. Thus, each book is one-of-a-kind, since each piece of leather reacts differently to the dye pigment. Almost all the books that you see on our website have been dyed with three to four different dyes in order to achieve a certain shade or effect. We finish the process by coating the leather with a water-based lacquer of natural beeswax and oils prepared according to our own “recipe”. The coated leather is then dried and hand polished. The extraordinary result is something you have never seen before and something large leather factories cannot duplicate. Leather is thin (1,5 mm)
In this book we use Hahnemühle Artist paper called Ingres. It is a mould-made ivory paper named after the famous French painter Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres (1780-1867). This paper is ideal for pencil, crayon, pastel, red ochre and watercolours, as well as for gel, ink or fountain pen. We love Hahnemühle paper for the uncompromising quality provided by this German paper mill with over 420 years of experience in the field.
In this book we use for endleaves handmade lokta paper from our Nepal friends. This paper is made from the fibrous bark of the Daphne Cannabina which grows at high altitudes in the Himalayas.
