Aurelia Ultra Journal


Inspired by Paris in the mid-18th century and the original binding housed copies of King Louis XV’s procedures for Holy Week, the Aurelia Ultra Journal is a journal fit for a king!

The French nobility were not noted for their restraint in the use of gold embellishment, and this cover is no exception. Originally crafted by Pierre-Paul Dubuisson, this design is a marvellous riot of gold-tooled rococo elements, featuring birds, flowers, and leaves. Dubuisson was himself bookbinding royalty of a sort. He and his father specialised in almanacs decorated with gold plates, and Dubuisson became the King’s official bookbinder in 1758.

This cover is an ode to the glory of gold, the colour of the sun, and the precious metal against which all others are measured.

This 144-page lined, ultra journal includes a memento pouch and ribbon marker, and features book edge printing.
