Baroque Ventaglio Brocaded Paper

Beautiful Gold Decorated Paper called brocaded paper has been around since the 16th century. Paperblanks Brocaded Paper Journals beautifully echo these traditional floral designs.
Bukhara Embellished Manuscripts
Bukhara, one of Uzbekistan’s largest cities, famous for millennia as a centre of learning and culture, was the birthplace of this dazzling 18th-century Islamic binding.
To inspire the writer, these unique journals portray the work of some of  the greatest writers, thinkers and artists of all time, featuring excerpts of original manuscripts.
Equinoxe Grolier Ornamentali
The cover, featuring a tendril motif, reproduces a 1688 binding from the Düsseldorf Museum Kunstpalast. It portrays a style popular from the late 1500s until the early 1700s that required tremendous skill on the part of the bookbinder and was reserved for books of great importance.
Jean Grolier (1479-1565) was among history’s most discerning collectors of beautiful books, and the first to develop a unique ornamental style of designs that became one of the most emulated worldwide.
Laurel Burch Mucha
San Francisco artist Laurel Burch created these much loved whimsical artworks including Mystical Horses, Fantastic Felines and more.
After years of toiling in obscurity, in 1895 the impoverished young Czech became an overnight sensation in Paris by creating a poster for a play starring Sarah Bernhardt, the most famous actress of the period. “Le style Mucha” was an important influence of the Art Nouveau movement.
Nocturnelle Old Leather
The Nocturnelle Collection is a reproduction of an antique French binding based on a cover designed in 1829 by publishers A. & W. Galignani for “The Poetical Works of Thomas Moore.” It features many of the hallmarks of fine binding from that era.
Capturing the flavour of Renaissance-style binding at its zenith, these handsomely embellished journals are a delight for the hand and the eye.
Parisian Mosaic Silver Filigree
The Parisian Mosaic Collection was inspired by an eighteenth-century leather mosaic binding executed in Paris by master binder Nicolas-Denis Derome. Descended from a renowned family of bookbinders, his works were much sought after as they showed a unique flair for lightness and vivacity of design.
These reproductions faithfully reproduce the appearance of the  beautiful art of Filigree. Includes: Book Edge Printing, Memento Pouch and Ribbon Marker.
William Morris More Designs
William Morris (1834–1896) was one of the most celebrated practitioners of the Arts and Crafts Movement.
