The Book Without Words is a volume of blank parchment pages - or so it might seem. But for reader filled with great desire, it may reveal the dark magic of Northumbria, including the forgotten art of making gold and achieving immortality. It has been protected for generations, but on a terrible day of death and destruction, the Book falls into the hands of a desparate boy. Set in early medieval England and rich with mystery and atmosphere, this is a thought-provoking fable about life and death, greed and betrayal, magic and secrets. Quarter-cloth binding with gold embellishments on the spine, the jacket is decorated with the same embellishments on the front and around the spine. The top front corner is slightly bumped. The printing is 14 pt. (larger than most, which are usual 12 pt. ). ; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 203 pages
