Ran across this the other day and decided to share; it's a beautiful hand-made cover for an old Clark Ashton Smith book. Link to image.

Quote:
Clark Ashton Smith, Planets and Dimensions, Arkham House Mirage 1973.
Marbled paper millimeter binding with black goatskin strips at head and tail. All edges graphite, Handsewn white silk endbands. Gray handmade paper endsheets. Cover paper marbled by the binder: graphite pigment on offwhite Hannemühle Ingres.

This was a student piece done while studying with Trudi Eberhardt some 20 years ago, and thus has numerous flaws. I’m still fond of the cover marbling, though, which seems appropriate to the subject matter.

Gee! Now my copy has just lost some of its shine and luster... Thanks just the same, "Ancient History"!
