The small size of this psalm book is typical of Scandinavian Lutheran texts. The colored bookbinding, however, is quite unusual. The binding probably dates from the rule of King Frederic V of Denmark, between 1746 and 1766. The tooling depicts two cherubs crowning Frederic at the top, with rampant lions and the king’s monogram below. The small silver clasps are delicate and finely wrought. Typical of the era, the silversmith did not use a hallmark, and the artist’s identity is not known.
Isaac Salazar derives his inspiration from the content of the material he is working with. For example, he carved a recycle symbol on Robert Lamb’s A World without Trees. An advocate of alternative energy and recycling, he rarely uses new books, but opts instead for books that may otherwise go to waste. He cuts, folds, and slices carefully, so as to preserve the books’ integrity. Recently, he has ventured into logos and symbols—an area he would like to pursue further.
