Black Moroccan Midi Journal


The timeless beauty of these antique books is brought into the present with Paperblanks' 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 journal includes a memento pouch, ribbon marker, and features book edge printing.
