  • Vellum
  • Direct Image Printing
  • Metallic Ink
  • Foil Stamping
  • Embossing

The title of the book and the author print on top of vellum in an embossed white foil stamped block, with the gold leaves reverse printing on the back of the vellum. The image of the young girl prints directly on to the book case. These 3 levels of printing create a unique visual and interesting depth to the imagery.
