Paperblanks Midi Journal, Literary Art Deco Collection
The Roaring Twenties. It was a period of prosperity and optimism: the decade of bathtub gin, the Model T, the Jazz Age, flappers and the first transatlantic flight. And the birth of a new aesthetic called Art Deco - a style purely about decorative luxury.
Paperblanks’ Literary Art Deco journals recreate that era of glamor, featuring two of the finest examples of French binding. The embossed covers emulate the originals, which were made of leather and decorated in gold. These journals are elegant, eclectic and modern - true to their roots.
Art Deco made its debut in Paris, inspired by the patterns and icons from exotic locales, including the symbolic images discovered in King Tutankhamen’s tomb. It melded the austere shapes of the Bauhaus School with the streamlined styling of the Machine Age. Its expression was pervasive, affecting clothing, jewelry, furniture, graphic design and architecture - and now Paperblanks’ notebooks.
Careful handwork and attention to detail make these journals the ultimate objets’ d’art to bind your own literary reflections.
