This is the second half of the commission. Again, everything was constructed by hand to build an even thicker grimoire for the commissioner's Necromancer. This is a 5-inch wide book that will hold just about whatever you want. Obvious work went into the skull motifs and I hand-picked a worn and beat 13oz hide to build the book from. The hide took the dye beautifully and wrinkles perfectly ont he belts and the rest.
Construction was similar, but with significantly more appliqué work, and I think the skull motif came out brilliantly. Turn-locks where used for the closers with adjustable belting in the back. another 1 inch belt was used for the shoulder strap, along with a pad and floating dagger sheath to complete the set.
