Size: 135x210x50mm, with 12 leaves of different size and shape hidden inside

When closed, the book looks like a very ordinary pocket book of usual size. The cover is quite dirty and the paper is yellow from sun light, it seems that the book has been read outdoors, probably on the beach or in the forest. However, there is no text inside. When we open the book, dried out exotic leaves fall from between itís pages. These leaves bring back memories of the summer holiday, which will never be repeated.
