Paperblanks Golden Trefoil Slim 3.75 x 7 Inch, Lined Journal
Inspired by the 16th-century French binding that originally housed the Opera Omnia, or complete works, of Giovanni Pontano (1426–1503), this design, thought to be created by the influential French bookbinder Claude de Picques, features a classic trefoil (clover) motif. This design is popularly seen in some of the world’s most iconic logos, crests and flags. Today this Golden Trefoil design can be found in the Davis Collection of antique bindings at the British Library.
Pontano was a poet and humanist from central Italy who arrived in Naples a penniless scholar. He then went on to become the trusted friend and advisor to Alfonso the Magnanimous, King of Aragon and Naples and one of the most prominent figures of the early Renaissance.
