Yellow Vademecum #1257
 
Vademecum means "Goes with me" in Latin. This Medieval type of book was designed to be worn on one's belt. You might think of it as an early version of our modern PDA. It too holds a lot of information in a small space. The book's folded pages open up to be read while still wearing the book, so everything in it is upside down to all but the reader. Early doctors would refer to charts and other information in their vademecum to aid in the diagnoses of their patients. This one is made up of pages of mechanical drawings. Twenty four pages have been stained with acrylic paints for an aged feel, and to complement the golden yellow goatskin cover.
