Books Of Wine-Dark Red

I often dream of a book, whose cover and lettering are wine-dark red. A book I am frequently drawn to consult, as if it contained deep secrets of sorcery and power.

The book has a tooled leather cover, with some sort of circular design on it. The pages are edged in gold, shiny and heavy to handle. It's unusually warm to the touch, too, as if alive.

I've never been able to read the contents, but the pages look gorgeous. On occasion, the lettering bleeds, and the book itself leaks a gorgeous, deep red fluid.

Not blood. Pomegranate juice.
