Modern Nag Hammadi Interpretation Book #1 - Inside

Modern Nag Hammadi Interpretation Book #1 - Inside
More detailed information can be found on my blog.

The first of these books was made for a book swap with the title "An Up-To-Date Interpretation Of The Nag Hammadi Binding".
I therefore wanted to combine old and new assocciations in one book and came up with this.

Binding: As close as possible to the Nag Hammadi Binding, given I wanted to use these Computer Boards. - Almost all stiches are tackets, and it has the characteristic close flap on the front cover, and some more technical details.

Inside: The pattered paper is Lokta paper decorated with my own lino cut, which carries details of a mother board design.

Text: A self developed cuneiform writing system. See this image made during the printing of the pages. The language is actually English :-)
