Laurel Vigil Book

I made this vigil book for a friend that was elevated yesterday.  Thought I did not base the design off of any historical piece, the gold work techniques were used on several books made in the 1500's. The signatures were stitched together with a Coptic stitch. The shield was done in split stitch.
 
 
Materials:
 
Velvet fabric
linen fabric (base of shield applique)
Parchment Paper
Silk Embroidery Thread
Gold metal thread
Gold boullion
endpapers
