thekatvond Lastly, here is a picture of the interior pages. Obviously, the chants, hymns, and text within this book were all transcribed in Latin. Some of the fully rendered calligraphic letters throughout the book make for great drawing references! 4d

thekatvond Gilding is the most beautiful method of ornamenting the edges of books, but it isn't mere ornamentation - it's also the best preservative that can be applied to book edges, blocking dust from penetrating between the pages, and also prevents decay, as well as giving a book remarkable resistance to fire, too! That's why, often times, you'll find heavily gold gilded pages on valuable antiquarian books and bibles.
Whoever made THIS book, opted for a less "flashy" approach and stuck w a traditional red gilt.

thekatvond The sacred heart adornment [along with all of the book's hardware] was handcrafted in solid brass. *keep in mind, this piece was simply designed to adorn the back of the book! So much beautiful attention to detail. 4d

  •   lizdymondd @jelenacice This does not occur due to GMOs. This is what happens when soil isn't sandy enough for carrots, or when they grow and run into a pebble or root in the soil. You can grow non GMO, organic purple carrots. So rad!4d
