Quarter red cloth, with color printed gray boards (vol. 1 has inlaid illustration in green and red), title printed in black to backstrips.

Each page packed with images including but not limited to, ceramics, glass, jewelry, wallpaper, furniture, book bindings, book plates, ornamental alphabets, book art, metalwork, silver, china, lace, and advertising art, represented with photographic reproductions, and sketches.
