xylothek. and i wonder, is the great northeastern woods, of which my 90 acres is a smidgin, actually a xylothek? we talk about reading the land, the forest...
two ethiopian board books, one with pages made from maps. maps from alaska and canada, which describe the the land for pilots. the boards? poplar, not hand hewn, but sourced from lowe's. sewn with waxed linen. 
these boards are hand hewn, though, and the paper hand made, the flax thread hand spun. made at jim and melody croft's old ways workshop in santa idaho. it doesn't live in a xylothek.
