|The 'Weeping Book' was custom made as a prop for the 2013 movie 'Mercy', based on a Steven King novel. Acid-free pages are handbound around four leather cords seen along the spine, and covered in brown leather. It was then artificial aged to make it look old and worn. Three teardrops are carved into the 'Weeping Book' cover, integral to the theme of the movie. The cover is framed by a raised border along the edges. Handmade brown textured coconut paper lines the inner covers as endsheets. The headbands, stitched directly into the spine edges, are comprised of leather cords wrapped with brown and tan threads. The cover hinges of the 'Weeping Book' are reinforced with two layers of 55 lb tensile strength fabric, both under the leather and under the coversheets, to ensure heirloom strength and quality.
