These exquisitely made books are bound
using traditional Chinese book-binding
techniques. Following the successes on
military and political strategy in The Art of
War and The Prince, we now add tenderness
of Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet, the honour of
the Samurai in Bushido and the sensuality
of The Kama Sutra. These are beautifully
presented, classic works to be cherished.
