I missed voting on this challenge.

I would love to leaf through the book even if I cannot read it. Such a beauty.
To me it lacks some air around it and it looks so very sharp, especially the detail of the velvet who mimics too much the detail of the worn cover. Could be my monitor though.

my only disappointment is that i dont know what the book is about ..
300 years old .. would transport the reader to another time and place .. very different to the one we are in now ..
having said that .. many ideas that ppl had years and years ago survive to this day as wonderful insightful and meaningful texts . take Cicero (106-43 BC) "gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others."

actually, I don't really know, maybe this book is even older, 300 years was my conservative estimate :). This is a Russian religious text of some sort (not a Bible) that has several front pages missing, so I don't know neither the title nor the year. It is beautifully hand-written in the old Cyrillic alphabet (half-Greek).


thanks for the info Lev .. :)
