A miniature book (55 x 40mm) with the titled behind a glass oval set into the cover. The ten pages are double-gatefold with text on a single line on both the folded and unfolded pages. The book is housed in the front of a metal container (60 x 45mm) this time behind a round glass pane. The front and back covers both open, the former hinged on the left and the latter hinged on both the left and right and divided in the centre. Both covers are held closed by a metal pin through a clasp with the pin held by a small metal chain. When the back cover is opened it reveals a small page with woven strips of text behind a large glass oval with an illustration behind and on the inside of the open flaps, This metal container has a metal look at the top through which a ribbon with a hook attached may be affixed to the container. The book housed in the metal container together with the ribbon is housed in two insets in a larger box decorated with the same textile as the cover of the book. The box has a flip back lid with the title again behind a larger glass oval.
