Intrinsic: Essence of Book.
Intrinsic definition, inwrought (adj) worked or woven into material especially decoratively.
Life is but a thin thread.

‘Touch a book. Hear the rattle of the paper, feel the weight of the binding and see colour running to every edge. Poetry and painting are rhythmically arranged in much the same way as lyrics are set to music. Making an artists book is like singing with the hands’.
Nancy Ruth Leavitt.
