Based on a cover originally produced in 1568 by the Berg & Neuber printing house in Nuremberg, Germany, this journal was named for the printing house's wonderful rarity -- its female director, Katharina Gerlachin. The cover, itself, was designed for Jeremiah Schweiglinum’s Handbook of the Lord’s Supper, a Renaissance missal which guided believers through Communion. The ancient original copy has nearly destroyed multiple times across the centuries, erasing the original gold tooling and crimson stain which has been lovingly reproduced in this copy, restoring the book to a vision of its original beauty. The original is currently housed at the Museum Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf. See the last photo to view the remains of the original. Reproduced with permission from the museum.
This beautiful lined book is the perfect inspirational tool for journaling, outlining, note-taking, recipe-keeping, and all of your (and your favorite writer's) composition needs.
