Gustav Klimt, the world in female form














Gustav Klimt, the world in female form.
A full leather binding with multiple leather inlays and onlays.
I love the work of Klimt and could not help but lavish the binding with
23 1/2 carat gold leaf in a Rimpa style.
A celebration of his work , the colour, texture
( a book is made to be held ) and Klimt-like motifs.

Already, I am a fan. Fantastic book! Makes me wish I had a book to bind.

Thank you for sharing.

Klimt and gold, definitely.
I've no idea how multiple inlays and onlays work but they sound right :)
