Hansel and Grethel

The design comes from the brother and sisters' journey to the old lady’s house through the woods. It’s shrouded in trees so they can’t quite see what is waiting for them just beyond.

Red skin pocked goat skin leather with Japanese paper onlays. Gold foil surface gilding. The title is Japanese paper cut outs. And I used marbled pastedowns and flyleaves with leather hinges. The silk endbands are hand sewn.
