Collection Spotlight: Old Leather

Sunday is Father’s Day so we decided this week to spotlight not only one of our more masculine-appealing collections but also one of Paperblanks’ most popular and highest-selling collections of all time – Old Leather.

The Look of Antique Leather

Capturing the flavour of Renaissance-style binding at its zenith, these handsomely embellished journals are 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, handtooled 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.

The timeless beauty of these antique books is brought into the present with our finely wrought binding reproductions.
