Cherry veneer. Brittle wood bent around board edges. A wooden book. Almost unbelievable to behold, no?
I assure you it is real and I don't know that I've ever seen another even remotely like it. The reinforced duck cloth spine is the real engineering achievement here and what allows the pieces to come together. Four understated large brass book corners compliment the overall appearance just perfectly. We wouldn't want to gild the lily, now would we? The satin finish clear lacquer doesn't interfere with the texture of the wood itself. This is what my dreams look like when I make them a reality.
