Book cover Can't Post

This came up in a thread in OT: book covers

DoN asked if I could post pictures of a book cover I made. I had bought "The Book of Weird" in the beat-up bin in a used book store. The paperback cover was torn and bent. I took it off and made a new cover of leather. I called it "Codex Mirificorum", which was my best bet at translating the title. I decided to make it as yummy as possible; a bibliophile's dream. I was thrilled with the way it came out. This was about 25 years ago. I've rebound other books, but this one is my favorite.

Book cover


"For DORA BAGGINS in memory of a LONG correspondence, with love from Bilbo; on a large wastebasket. Dora was Drogo's sister, and the eldest surviving female relative of Bilbo and Frodo; she was ninety-nine, and had written reams of good advice for more than half a century."
