Le Gascon
Rosettes and Spirals

This cover is inspired by an original design attributed to Le Gascon, a legendary but little-known 17th-century bookbinder. Le Gascon was the inventor of the pointillé and fanfare styles, and his influence is felt throughout the rich bookbinding history that follows him.

If this cover was not created by Le Gascon, it is certainly in his style and was made by another French master. Le Gascon–style bindings first appeared near the end of the reign of Charles IX and were revered for the sophistication and intricacy of their ornamentation. Le Gascon’s fanfare bindings featured gilt decoration that spread out in repeated fanfare patterns, as well as pointillé tooling bordered by bands.

The original cover was made of red Moroccan leather embossed and gilded with rosettes, spirals and dotted lines. It also featured Le Gascon’s emblematic small compartments which were created by carving ridges into the leather.

No matter who created the original binding, our cover pays homage to its consummate artistry and visionary design.

Lace Allure
In Love and Lace

Is there any fabric more imbued with cultural associations than lace? A piece of delicate white lace conjures up thoughts of weddings, christenings and other ceremonial occasions. Now cast your eye to the bit of black lace and thoughts turn to mortality, mourning and eroticism. Then, if you dare, consider the almost-too-provocative slip of red lace. No more needs to be said!

Lace, which rose to popularity in the 16th century, is an openwork fabric with holes made by machine or by hand. Lacemaking is a venerable craft that involves looping, twisting and braiding threads to create the openwork patterns. As a fabric, lace literally and figuratively allows us to see beneath the surface. It’s used to enhance, to emphasise and to hide. It is used to denote both innocence and seduction.

These are particularly fine examples of hand lacework and they reside firmly in the realm of the sweetly romantic.

Old Leather Black Moroccan
The Look Of Antique Leather
Capturing the flavour of Renaissance-style binding at its zenith, these handsomely embellished journals are a delight for the hand and the eye. During this remarkable period of classical revival, manuscripts were renowned for their exquisitely crafted covers made of fine Moroccan leather, handtooled in gold with delicate foliage patterns. Brought to Europe via the flourishing trade routes to the Far and Middle East, this style of ornamentation lent a new vibrancy and lightness of design that was not present in mediæval manuscripts.

The timeless beauty of these antique books is brought into the present with our finely wrought binding reproductions.
