Description The Paperblanks Venetian Morning Aureo Journal in the Mini size is 3.75 x 5.5 inches and Smyth Sewn for durability. It has 176 lined pages, includes a memento pouch, and ribbon marker and features an elastic band closure. A Venetian morning is alight with marvels. From sunlight sparkling on water to the startling hues of incomparable architecture, Venice enchants the eye from first light to last gloaming. We have captured some of the splendid daybreak palette of the ancient city with these four striking covers. These covers are inspired by a Renaissance binding for a book called The Treatise on Colors. The original design dates back to the early 1600s and was crafted from red morocco leather in fine gold borders and checkers of green, red, blue and brown in the midfield, as well as lace fillets and marbled endpapers. The covers embrace the Renaissance value of cultural rebirth by representing an ancient book binding with contemporary bookmaking techniques.
