Old Leather Handtooled Midi Journal


This product is sold out

The timeless beauty of these antique books is brought into the present with our finely wrought binding reproductions!

Capturing the flavour 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 mediæval manuscripts.

This 144-page lined midi journal includes a memento pouch and ribbon marker.

Size: 12.7 x 17.78 cm (5 x 7 inches)
