Each book within this collection is personally signed by the author. Every volume is fully bound in top-quality genuine leather and embellished with gold stamping of an original design. The acid-free leaves are Smyth-sewn; their edges are gilded for additional protection and elegance. A permanent silk ribbon marker ensures easy reference. The raised bands across the spine are distinctive of the classic bookmaker's art. Specially commissioned marbelized endleaves are reminiscent of fine Old World editions. Coordinating headbands grace both ends of the spine and add strength. A must for any collector.
