The removable pamphlet book and its case are both covered in paste paper in shades of blues, greens, and reds. The pamphlet book has a fore-edge flap that has been covered in hand-dyed indigo. The colors were all chosen in reference to the beautiful Dresden china of Germany, which has a long history as home of German royalty as well as a center of arts and culture.
