What does "in gold twist" mean here?

"The hanging of Faith and Mahomet, made around the time of Murad’s death, shows Faith modelled closely on Queen Elizabeth. She stands in front of a backdrop of ecclesiastical architecture, next to a large crucifix, holding a Bible in her right hand with the word ‘Faith’ picked out on its spine in gold twist, a communion chalice in her left hand, and ‘Fides’ embroidered on her arm."
