Middle Kingdom Great Book

Leather Case

Artist: Master Ricard of Sabletree
Copyright: Richard Towler

 

 

 

This beautiful heavy leather case was created as a replacement for the first case, which was stolen in a burglary at the home of one of the artists working on the book. With great relief, the kingdom is thankful that the crooks saw no reason to also take the heavy wooden chest containing the book! Had they only known.....

 

The case bears a striking example of Scandinavian style ornamentation. The stylized Midrealm dragon is tooled into the leather on the front, sides, and flap, and the straps are stitched with the shape of the wolves of Septentria. The panel on the front face is stipple work.
