Paperblanks Diamond Rosette Journal Collection
The cover of the Paperblanks Midi Oceania and Viola Mid size journals are inspired by an Italian book binding dating to 1620. Paperblanks aquamarine Oceania and violet Viola design showcases a floral pattern and rosette motif. Its Diamond Rosette design resembles an elaborate rose window.
Book bindings from the 17th century are characterized by the ornamental richness of the cover’s central area. These designs were in direct contrast to the Renaissance frame style, which left the centre largely unadorned. Featuring sweeping tendrils in a centralized diamond shape, this cover is a classic example of the era’s bookbinding style.
