Shroud your private prose in Paperblanks’ Nocturnelle journal—an impressive tribute to 19th century French bookbinding. Inspired by a cover designed in 1829 for “The Poetical Works of Thomas Moore,” it’s adorned with the metallic gold rosettes, spirals and stylized leaves that were architectural trends at the time. Sturdy and expertly finished, it also reflects the era’s preference for the heft of Moroccan leather.
Considered Ireland’s National Bard, Thomas Moore penned poems contemplating love and espousing the Catholic cause—many of which were set to music. Perhaps antiquity will inspire your own melodies on the journal’s lined, archival-quality pages, fastened securely with metal clasps.
