The text block is by book artist and bookbinder, Sialia Rieke who recounts a story of an angel coming to earth and falling in love with a human. The bat is my interpretation of him flying to the woman on a cloudy day forming the heart breaking story that is soon to come.
The Fable is bound in tan goatskin with laced-in boards and Pergamena vellum set into the cover with gilt ornament corners. The book is sewn in the style of montage sur onglets with hand sewn silk end-bands. Brown pastedowns and flyleaves with leather hinges. 2/2018
