Morina Mongin, La T'te or, illustrations by Miloslav Moucha

La T'te or is a poem about making a gold top edge on a binding. I wanted my binding to complement the sensual engraving and have a feeling of creation and fluidity, using shades of gold from bronze to yellow.

Limp leather binding in top-pared bronze-colored calf. Sewn montage sûr onglets. Doublures of embossed gold calf. Silk and 14 carat gold embroidered endbands. Paste paper flyleaves by binder. Three bronze pieces secured to cover with 18 carat gold wire. Title hand tooled in gold. Natural edges. 5.5 x 5 x .5 inches. 14 x 12.7 x 1.3 centimeters. Created 2017.
