Details about the binding by Robert Wu:

I created this new inventive structure called “Thistle book” as the book opens up to 360 degrees to form a purple thistle flower to showcase all the interior colourful photographs of bouquets. Bound in calf skin decorated with floral textures and silver sunago flakes. The title is stamped in gold with top edge coloured purple and guaffered. Purple dandelion paste endpaper by me with sunago flakes. Purple and gold silk headbands. Housed in a Chinese/ Japanese style folding box covered with green cloth and my own green dandelion paste paper.

 

The book measures 2.5”x3”x1”. The folding box measures 6”x6”x1.5”.
