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 the events of the day or recording elaborate fictions. The cover 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 compartmentalized design finds its inspiration in the French style 'a la fanfare', which gained popularity during the first half of the seventeenth century. This richly layered, decadent journal is an ideal place to preserve inspired contemplations.
