It’s the second day of Summer and so it’s a good opportunity to show off one of our warmer collections – Paperblanks’ Romantic Sensibility Collection.

For Moments of Contemplation, Impulses of Genius

The Romantics viewed the world as a place where delicacy and modesty combined to create perfection. Poetical observations of nature, and feelings of tenderness and melancholy, were preoccupations of the 18th-century Romantic mind. Gentle books of sensibility were the perfect accessory for those moments of contemplation in the garden that led to impulses of genius. Inspired by the antique gilt-embossed leather binding of the 1843 volume “The Poetical Remains of Henry Kirke White of Nottingham,” these sublime cover designs are certain to bring out the romantic in anyone.

  1. It is my favourite collection but can more colours be offered in Midi size? I would love to see more colours like yellow and blue too.

      • I love love love paperblanks, they’re simply the most beautiful books in the whole world. But could you PLEASE introduce the Grolier version in Ultra HOR?? I am not a huge fan of vertical, keep up the fantastic work, I am forever buying stacks of your beautiful books!

        • Hi Alexander, thanks for getting in touch and for your kind words. We’ll make sure to forward your feedback to our production department.

  2. I wish this Romantic Sensibility collection came in ultra and grande sizes. Midi and micro are too small for my journaling. Will those sizes ever be available for this collection?

    • Thanks for this feedback! Unfortunately, our Romantic Sensibility Collection has been discontinued so at this point we do not have plans to bring the covers back in new sizes.

      However, a couple of years ago we did reimagine this design in some contemporary new colours as a series called The New Romantics. There are two ultra versions available for this series:
