The 1709 Swiss book binding that inspired our Shimmering Delights series was originally crafted from black leather punctuated by metallic studs. This type of decoration, a technique known as pointillé, was created using hammered brass pins.

It just so happens that while we were developing these new Paperblanks® covers we were also munching on some delicious and fresh macarons – and who wouldn’t be inspired by the delicate colours of those tasty treats? We ended up softening the leather look of the original binding by crafting butter yellow and soft pink versions to highlight the shimmering dotted pattern.

And the best part is that these gorgeous journals are arriving in stores just in time for this Friday’s “Macaron Day,” so you too can satisfy your sweet tooth!

  1. Can you please make a ten year journal in the pink shimmering delights cover? It would be perfect to record the first 10 years of a newborn baby girl, so pretty !

    • Hi Connie,

      That does sound like it would make an ideal choice! We’ll forward that idea long to our Product Development team.

    • Hi Lisa,

      That’s a great idea! We’ll forward it along to our Product Development team!

  2. Can you please revive this shimmering delights series design? They are so simple and elegant but no-where to find. Would be so lovely for an artist to paint in unlined or sketchbook or guestbook versions!

    • Thank you for your comment! At the moment we don’t have any new Shimmering Delights designs planned, but we can definitely pass your suggestion on to our design team 🙂
