Baroque Ventaglio Collection, Ventaglio Rosso, Grande, Unlined - Paperblanks
- Ex Tax: S$63.70
Have you got something important to say? About your life, your thoughts, your ideas? Where better to pen a magnum opus than inside this magnificent example of Roman a ventaglio (fan) binding? The reproduction of gilt-work melting over red Moroccan leather shrouds unadorned pages that make space for chronicling events of the day or recording elaborate fictions.
The cover on this Paperblanks Ventaglio Rosso journal displays at its centre a rose window surrounded by a design of slight Eastern influence and in each corner a filigree fan – the window quartered. An intricate ornamentation typical of Italian Baroque, the geometrically compartmentalised design finds its inspiration in the French style à la fanfare, which gained popularity during the first half of the seventeenth century. Characterised by a celebration of ornate detail, Baroque decoration draws interest to deep symbolism couched in opulence.
This richly layered, decadent journal is an ideal place to preserve your inspired contemplations.
