Symbolism Couched in
Where better to pen a magnum
opus than inside this magnificent example of Roman a
ventaglio (fan) binding? Our reproduction of gilt-work melting
over red Moroccan leather shrouds unadorned pages that make space
for chronicling events of the day or recording elaborate
Our 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 à la fanfare, which
gained popularity during the first half of the seventeenth century.
Characterized by a celebration of ornate detail, Baroque decoration
draws interest to deep symbolism couched in opulence.
