Box made from 1550 Danish Bible covers

Above: The spine is the suede side of new leather painted with acrylic to match the old,
sewn loosely to holes in the original covers.

The holes were made at some point in the book's history to stab-sew the pages to the boards.
The few extant pages of this mostly missing book were bought by the dealer Pavlov to sell by the leaf.

Minsky, 2000
