Word art and poetry centered on yod, the tenth and smallest letter of the Hebrew alphabet, as well as a term in astrology indicating the calculated relation of two astral bodies. Constructed loose in cover, unpaged, openings attached by fore edges creating an accordion like effect. Pages are heavy card and ink application is heavy in places. Page stack is protected in covers, and an added slipcase of drab paper imprinted by the ubiquitous Yod motif. The construction is unusual, and not entirely successful in preserving the elements: the slipcase is tattered and quite a number we've seen are missing it.
Also, the white buckram is a bit soiled from the many hands fiddling with the loose fitting half-length slipcase. Listing and template services provided by inkFrog.
