Leather Edition. History of the crown jewels of Great Britain by Karen Feinberg. Illustrated by Romilda Dilley. This special edition is bound in rich royal purple kid. The difference between the same hot die stamping gold on leather or on book cloth is especially evident in the cover of this book. The leather edition reveals all the great detail the die maker has put into his work. Stamping on book cloth just loses much of the subtlety. The cover design by Louise Bange shows the beautifully detailed crown of the British monarchs. End paper is green, purple and cream. 15/16" tall, 64 pages. $45.00.
