The book itself was acquired at an antiques shop in Arcadia, Florida in 1998. The book measures approximately 20"x 28" and is 56 pages of very sturdy, thick paper . At the time of its purchase it was completely blank and its actual intended function was not known. The manuscript is completely hand drawn and inscribed in my own personal calligraphy. The illustrations are gouaches, inks and even some chemicals and natural substances like earth and flower pollen.
Examples of the pages are given below - for larger view click individual images.
