The cover of the 9 x 12 Deluxe Edition is constructed of durable, dark red genuine leather. The artwork, depicting a host and chalice, is foil-stamped in gold and green and surrounded by engraved Florentine-inspired scrollwork. The page edges are gilded in gold. Text throughout the book is two colors (black and deep red) on eye-pleasing, natural parchment-colored paper. The type is large and legible, for ease of reading and proclaiming the texts, even in low light. High-quality ribbons and sturdy genuine leather tabs accent the book, providing you with excellent placeholders.
