Daniel Essig creates wooden covered art books and book-based sculptures. Using a fourth-century binding style known as Ethiopian style Coptic, he creates mixed-media book structures that incorporate unusual woods,
handmade paper, found objects, fossils, and mica. He lives in Asheville, North Carolina, where he has a studio at the Grovewood Gallery.

This is the only piece of his I have. It's actually a little book - meaning it has pages. But the book is so beautiful, I can't think of anything profound enough to scribble onto the pages. Any thoughts?
