India’s Taj Mahal is one of the world’s greatest monuments to love. Commissioned by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan to house the tomb of his most favoured wife, Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj Mahal is renowned for its symmetry and breathtaking construction.

The primary motif of its design is flowers carved into marble and inlaid with stones, or crusted with semiprecious jewels using a technique called “pietra dura.”

To carve into marble is to commit to perfection. Any mistake meant the whole slab had to be discarded. Each of these marbled flowers is its own masterwork. It is these iconic marble flowers that we celebrate in our Taj Mahal Flowers journal series.

Our covers reproduce photos taken by Gérard Degeorge, the prolific photographer behind our Intricate Inlays, Precious Gems and Gates of Cairo series – to name just a few.

There are four mini journals available in our Taj Mahal series:

  • Lahori, named for the Taj Mahal’s chief architect Ustad Ahmad Lahori
  • Mumtaz, named for the Shah’s beloved wife for whom the Taj Mahal was built
  • Shah, named for the Mughal Emperor who commissioned the building
  • Agra, named for the city in India where the Taj Mahal is located

  1. Simply wonderful <3
    Yet, they're available as Minis, only. Unfortunately, that's way too small for my purposes 🙁
    If they were dot-grid planners, I'd buy all four of them <3
    Will be waiting for updates on these designs 🙂

    • Thanks so much for the kind words and helpful feedback! We’ll be sure to pass this along to our design team 🙂
