The book is a blank book bound in full bookcloth with cork decoration. That piece was just waiting to be used. I love the texture, and I kept the lines simple to let the material "speak for itself." Like wood, cork is so alive and reminds me of trees and forests. The white light paper of the book block is sewn on ribbons with a decorative orange endband.
