Charles P. Mountford, The Dreamtime, 1968

The book was sewn on recessed cords with laced-on boards and sewn silk endbands. Endpapers are paste papers with leather hinges. One of the illustrations in the book, by Ainslie Roberts, The Origin of Fire, was used as the inspiration for the binding. The yellow goatskin was dyed multiple times to create the sunset sky. Dyed, pared, and feathered onlays were used with blind tooling. The title is tooled in gold leaf. 9.5 x 7 x 0.5 inches, 24 x 18 x 1.5 centimeters. Created 2009.
