Capturing the flavor of Renaissance-style binding at its zenith, these handsomely embellished journals are a delight for the hand and the eye. During this remarkable period of classical revival, manuscripts were renowned for their exquisitely crafted covers made of fine Moroccan leather, hand tooled in gold with delicate foliage patterns. Brought to Europe via the flourishing trade routes to the Far and Middle East, this style of ornamentation lent a new vibrancy and lightness of design that was not present in medieval manuscripts. The timeless beauty of these antique books is brought into the present with our finely wrought binding reproductions.
