Tibetan Buddhists revere their texts, and they show this reverence by creating elaborate book covers to protect them. These covers are often carved with decorative reliefs, including figures, animals and stylized foliage, as can be seen in the examples on display in the exhibition In the Land of Snow. Following the Tibetan example, create your own unique cover for a book that you treasure.
