Armor coptic book

This is my most recent coptic book. It will be a journal for my brother. I have a Mayan/BOM theme. The embossed metal carries glyphs that are scripture references to verses about wearing the armour of God. note the burned wood Questocoatle (sp?) key. the lock carving represents the liahona.
Once again I am using my faux leather technique. other materials: nickel lock, leather, wood, waxed linnen thread. The flap will carry a pen holder. Front, back and inside pastedown pictures. Pastedown is Ingres paper with walnut ink bleeding.

Boston, that rocks. I had no idea you were so good at this bookbinding stuff.

How did you do the metal bits? Did you cast that yourself?
