We have bound our books in many extraordinary styles, but none so authentically exotic as Seven Years in Tibet. The cover is pure Bure silk, imported from India. Protecting the cover is a cotton sleeve, known as a "pi-chu", which is encased front and back by a pair of magnolia wood boards, or "lepshing." The top board is incised with a Tibetan good-luck charm cut by monks of the Tibetan Refugee Center in Darjeeling, India.

Seven Years in Tibet is an autobiography written by Austrian mountaineer Heinrich Harrer based on his real life experiences in Tibet between 1944 and 1951. The story takes place during the Second World War and the interim period before the Communist Chinese People's Liberation Army moved into Tibet in 1950. It narrates the true story of an Austrian prisoner of war who successfully escaped his British captors in India in 1944 on the third attempt. His escape route led him across Tibet. In 1943, Heinrich Harrer, escaped captivity and made his way through the Himalayan passes to the Forbidden City of Lhasa in Tibet and finally lived for years in Lhasa becoming a tutor to the Dalai Lama. Seven Years in Tibet was first published in Germany before being acquired by Dutton.
