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.
