This colorful journal is based on a glorious volume produced in 1736 for Johann Gottlieb Vierling in the Bavarian town of Hof. An agricultural upturn of the era had resulted in an surge of wealth for the residents of the town. As a result, luxury items such as this one were suddenly afforable. These covers originally contained a Bible, as was in keeping with Vierling's taste for philosophical, religious, and scientific works. The artwork of the cover is particular interesting as a stylistic meeting of filigree and botanica, both popular but usually separate elements of the era. Filigree was a delicate and intricate metalwork which features fine, coiling arcs. The botincal element, however, features a very stately and straight. The marriage of these two distinct styles lends a dynamism to this exquite cover which is lovingly reproduced for this wonderful journal.
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.
