Full leather binding using linen board attachment with covering leather and doublures in hand-dyed Hewit's Fair Goat. Extensive blind and foil tooling in pigment and gold with gilded inlays. All edges decorated before sewing in gold leaf and acrylic ink.

The binding structure, use of materials and decoration all aim to complement Blake's light hearted and lyrical text. Additionally, they are meant to reflect and enhance the rhythm of the 'stepped' typography format.
