This book is dedicated to the Romanesque embroidery of the Creation Tapestry in Girona Cathedral and includes a piece by Antoni Tàpies on linen fabric as a form of wrapping.

It begins with a preface by the editors and an introduction by the physicist Jorge Wagensberg. The main section of the book is an extensive sequence of very high quality photographs of the various details of the tapestry, featuring spectacular images, which are accompanied by extracts from the Book of Genesis.

The book is completed by a comprehensive study of the complex symbolism of the tapestry by the medieval scholar Joaquín Yarza, Emeritus Professor at the Autonomous University of Barcelona.
