Long stitch binding with Twinrocker's HMP grey with fleck endpapers. Cover is alum tawed goat spine with birch boards that are painted and spattered. The interior of the box is also painted to continue the snow storm of the book cover. This bilingual book has relief etchings by the binder.

"The text is the story of a doctor called out in a raging snow storm to cure a boy who is incurable; the onlookers and family turn on the doctor because he is not God and send him naked back into the storm."
