Paperblanks Midi, Signature Editions Mystique Midi 5 x 7 Inch Lined Journal
The cover is inspired by an orginal design attributed to Le Gascon, a legendary but little-known 17th century bookbinder. Le Gascon was the inventor of the pointille and fanfare styles, and his influence is felt throughout the rich bookbinding history that follows him.
Le Gascon-style bindings first appeared near the end of the reign of French king Charles IX and were revered for the sophistication and intricacy of their ornamentation. Le Gasco's fanfare bindings featured gilt decoration that spread out in repeated fanfare patterns, as well as pointille tooling bordered by bands.
Paperblank beautifully executed cover design pays homage to Le Gascon consummate artistry and visionary design. Book Edge printing makes this Signature Edition stand out from any angle. Paperblanks Signature Mystique midi journal has a generous 240 pages, lined paper and an elastic band closure.
