Ventaglio Rosso Mini Journal

Ventaglio Rosso Mini Journal

$ 17.95

Where better to pen a magnum opus than inside this magnificent example of Roman a ventaglio (fan) binding? Our reproduction of gilt-work melting over red Moroccan leather shrouds unadorned pages that make space for chronicling events of the day or recording elaborate fictions.

Our cover displays at its centre a rose window surrounded by a design of slight Eastern influence and in each corner a filigree fan – the window quartered. An intricate ornamentation typical of Italian Baroque, the geometrically compartmentalized design finds its inspiration in the French style à la fanfare, which gained popularity during the first half of the seventeenth century. Characterized by a celebration of ornate detail, Baroque decoration draws interest to deep symbolism couched in opulence.

This richly layered, decadent journal is an ideal place to preserve inspired contemplations.
