Summary expansion
Glossy white-on-black photographic images of the letters of the bird-foot alphabet are arranged on thirteen of the leaves or panels, two to a panel, with the corresponding letter of the modern Roman alphabet in the lower left corner of each image. The initial panel contains the title, and the last two contain the imprint and artist's signature, respectively. All of the panels are bound accordion-style on a continuous strip of black cloth, and tied with a dark green cord. The folded stack is wrapped in white paper, printed in black with tiny images of the birds' feet, and secured with a silver elastic cord and circular gold toggle
