Lysistrata, base dying complete.

I am liking this the book.

The base dying is complete.

Though we think of the obvious, there are the underlying tensions of the Peloponnesian war. The base dying reflects the chaos and destruction of war. 

The women sacrifice wine to the gods and old men try to burn them out of the Acropolis and the women swear to stop having sex with their men folk until peace breaks out.

There are mock fights lots of singing and frustrated men all over the place.

The next phase of the binding work is to start on the inlays, text (a big NO) and graphics (images of a nature), this will be in collage.
