Summary
"Excerpts from the Codex Exoniensis (circa 1100, Anonymous, in Anglo-Saxon) and an English translation (1842, Benjamin Thorpe) with vignettes, calligraphy, and relief cuts. The calligraphed Anglo-Saxon excerpts appear on the inner 2.5" x 2" concertina that connects the larger panels on which the relief cuts appear. A non-traditional woven format unites the illustrations and text of the book. The structure enables the reader to handle the book in a traditional manner, paging double page spreads, or to remove the last tab from the spine and view the extended pages to reveal the image of a rising phoenix on the recto and descending phoenix on the verso"--Vamp & Tramp website (viewed March 7, 2013)
