Our Parisian Mosaic collection was inspired by an 18th-century leather mosaic binding created in Paris by master binder Nicolas-Denis Derome. Descended from a renowned family of book binders, Derome was much sought after as his works showed a unique flair for lightness and vivacity of design. This gold-tooled and polychromatic cover recalls a medieval motif called au seme, which consists of small decorative patterns arranged in symmetrical lines or columns resembling a sown field. The adoption of this ancient heraldic motif, combined with fresh colors and new materials, brought mosaic binding into a new era of artistry.
