Dragon Skin book by Maylar Dragon Skin book by Maylar
As the title suggest, a book bound in dragon skin... Well, faux dragon skin... Well, handmade faux dragon skin, made by me (of course ;)). I found a new way to make this and even this book is too small to show how it really looks and feels very realistic on larger surfaces. What's most important, a friend to who this book was sent as a birthday present likes it ^^

Of course, since this books is made of dragon skin, it is only appropriate for it to be singed by their fire, as well. The best example of this can be seen on the top photo, but the covers received their part of burning, which can be seen much clearer in reality than in photos, sadly.

Anyway, in rush over sending the package, I forgot to measure the book once again :roll: If I remember correctly, it should be some 1 cm in height (0.39 inch) - it looks bigger on photos than it really is ;) The gem is petrified dragon blood...well faux one...well, handmade faux dragon blood (and guess who made that... ;) )

I'm sorry you can't see the back cover, it has some faint gilding, which can be partially seen in lower left corner photo...I also didn't made video this time, or photographed inner pages (there's crimson endpapers and mint tea dyed papers inside), as first page contains the dedication to my friend, which is personal.

And that's that. Hope you like it :)
