Grolier Signature Edition Midi Journal
Jean Grolier (1479 - 1565) was among history's most discerning collectors of beautiful books. At the time of his death he possessed one of the greatest and most extensive private libraries in the world, compromised of books he commissioned for himself and those he acquired or was given. In a style described as "quiet and simple, yet rich and flowing", the majority of the brilliant works were exectured in Paris by two remarkable binding houses.
This Paperblanks journal cover is based on one of Grolier's last great commissions, a gold-tooled marbled brown leather creation with an interlaced curving design of single-line fillets and floral tools filling out the six-pointed star.
