Writing is surrounded by detailed lines and floral motifs. The right image is very similar except for the writing. The front outside cover comments on the possible writer. More writing is found in the middle and the bottom left of the front outside. Writing appears on the upper right front cover and the upper left back cover. More writing appears on the back at the center.
