Hand engraved and painted book

I have completed a new book for a customer just a couple of days ago. The images used are what the customer gave me and I finished off the design with some hand painting in gold leaf. I think this book of shadows is my best to date.

Is that one of your wooden covers, or did you carve into the "real" cover of the book? I think I'm seeing wood grain, but not quite sure. It's a striking design!

Re: Hand engraved and painted book

Very intriguing book-cover design and artwork. Is the cover your design? It looks like it was designed to keep the book open to its selected page for incantations and the like. You did a great job with both the cover and the gold leaf. I am sure your customer was very pleased with it. Well done!
