Binding

Finely bound in half emu and kangaroo leathers, with printed cloth sides; coloured and glazed edges, head- and tail-bands and marker ribbon. The red spine comes from the leg of the emu and the green fore-edge is vegetable tanned kangaroo. The colour scheme is intended to represent Australia, with its red and ochre centre and the green coastal strip, while the kangaroo and emu are a reflection of our coat of arms.
