Neither Silver nor Gold

The Bible links silver and gold literally dozens of times, usually alluding to the futility of their value in relations to eternal values. This artist book was a thick small book, permanently fixed in an open position to create a kind of painted sculpture. An intense red underlayment of color was applied to the book, and then half was gilded with 24 carat gold leaf, with pure silver on the other portion.
