  • Capturing the flavor of Renaissance-style binding at its zenith, this handsomely embellished journal is 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 this finely wrought reproduction.
