Double roll three colour head and tail bands. Design tooled in blind and 23 3/4 carat gold.  

'Bougainville is a very fertile island, so I wanted a design to show the verdant foliage which
grows there in abundance. These creeping threads also represent the evolving storyline, with events
escalating out of control. The tooling in gold and blind depicts the multi-layers of the book.'
