Along the foredge of the box (tomb), 13 cow's teeth have been set in handmade silver bezels. The inside covers each have four brass and copper rods (oxidized green). The book itself is bound in boards with linen spine which are "leafed, and variegated and painted in metallic fungoid patterns over which the author has painted a female figure to represent one of the stories (author's description)." The gessoed boards are copper colored and the female is in blue with onlays of four small white bones outlining the skeleton. The book lays into the marble box (tomb). The four illustrations are hand colored by the author who has also made a number of small revisions in the text.
