This comission was inspired by the music of Elgar 'The dream of Gerontius' based on the poem by Cardinal John Newman.
The cover fearures a mix of statement paper and silk blooms clustered with pearls and a butterfly.
The recipients name is on the tag with the charm 'someone special'.
The solid spine on this album has been left neutral and decorated with a burgandy knit tassel, hand painted treble cleff and word charms with beads and metalic fibres.
Construction throughout the book maximises the space for photographs and journaling by folding, flipping and tucking to increase page size.
