Carla Busquets: "Every section of the book depicts a chamber of a medieval castle: the entrance, the armoury, the dining room, the bedroom, and the library. The book opens 360 degrees. The structure is vaguely based on the castle of Fougères, in France, although the furniture and details are completely invented and adapted from different sources of inspiration. All candle flames have a mica covering to give the impression of candlelight. "
