"The production of leaf gold is a very important industry, but little has been written about it and less about the gold beaters who produce it. Gold can be beaten into leaves so thin that they are translucent. These sheets, commonly referred to as "leaf gold", are very delicate and must be handled with extreme care." -from the book.
