A matte black background sets off tulips and other motifs which are illumined with iridescent red highlights and patterns of leaves and lacey accents are traced in gold foil on the Canterbury Journal.
This journal's cover reproduces a gold-tooled goatskin bookbinding created in London in 1701. The slanted lines at the top and bottom of the panel (referred to as the cottage roof style) were a distinguishing motif in English bindings around the turn of the 18th century.
This 160-page lined journal contains a ribbon bookmark, acid-free/archival paper, and features binding that lies flat for ease of use.
