Box made from early Antiphonary covers

Above: The spine is new leather dyed to match the old, over binder's board with simulated cords
The original spine was missing parts and was smaller than the box. It was pared thin as an onlay.
The flesh side that was pared off was shaved thin and used to make up the missing parts.
