Medieval Book of Trees
with Richard Salley

Jamul, California


Surely it took both a jeweler and a bookbinder to create the lavish gem-laden treasure bindings of the Middle Ages. History is going to repeat itself in April when Richard Salley and Leslie Marsh team up to bring you “The Medieval Book of Trees” - a book workshop inspired by those luxurious works of art previously owned by only royalty or God.

  2. Hola Leslie, I would like to introduce myself as Sam Leonard, the proud owner of Hacienda Mosaico located in beautiful Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. www.haciendamosaico.com. Richard Salley is here with me and has suggested that we would be a good 'fit'. Your work is beautiful and if you look at my antiquated site and think you might be interested in having a retreat here....I would love to hear from you to discuss possibilities. I have many desirable dates available in 2018/19. I look forward to hearing from you. Best, sam
