- This lined journal with the gold inlay design is a faithful recreation of a 19th century German design. Patrons encourged bookbinders to imitate designs from the Renaissance and Romantic eras that were valued for their ornamental richness.
By looking to history for inspiration, bookbinders created extraordinary works of art. Book covers were fequently decorated with gold, adorned with silk, cloisonne enamels and precious stones.
Back of journal features an accordion-style memento pouch for notes and other paper ephemera. Uses acid-free, sustainable forest paper and 100% recycled binder boards for covers.
