This glorious journal was recreated from a painstakingly illuminated page of the one of the earliest-surviving copies of Dante Alighieri's epic Comedìa Divina. Published in 1320, the legendary poem was bound in three volumes, Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradisio, this page was captured from the first book in the series. Tragically, none of Dante's originals have survived the ages, but this manuscript is a 14th century copy and one of the earliest produced. See the final photo for another image from the same manuscript. The Divine Comedy is considered not only one of the most important and innovative works of the Middle Ages, but of all time, and helped shape many future works with such prominent authors as Geoffrey Chaucer, John Milton, and Alfred Lord Tennyson all counting themselves as devotees of the earlier writer. Let this hugely inspirational tome lend its creativity to your day.
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.
