We are pleased to introduce new additions to our collections for Spring 2010:
Our Lindau Gospels Collection is a brand new series for our North American market. Depicted on our journals is the back cover design of this bookmaking masterwork from the 8th century-era. Originally tooled in gilt, silver and enamel and elaborately decorated with jewels, the Lindau Gospels are a powerful manifestation of art as a vehicle for belief.
We’ve released new Embellished Manuscripts titles dedicated to Charles Darwin and Honoré de Balzac . Designed to inspire the writer, our Embellished Manuscripts portray the work of some of the greatest writers, thinkers and artists of all time. These reproductions of excerpts of original manuscripts, letters and drawings provide a glimpse into the creative process of figures such as William Shakespeare, Vincent Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo and Goethe.
This season we offer new formats and titles in our French Ornate Collection, a series dedicated to the luscious fabrics of the Jacquard loom silk weaving tradition of France. Richly coloured and textured, these journals are exactingly printed to recreate the luminosity and look of silks from the “Silk Road” era, when Europe was exposed to the soft, shimmering sensuality of silk.
We’ve also added new Micro formats to our popular Good Dog! series. These images, by contemporary Brazilian artist Sandro Solsona, present a series of classic canine attitudes and poses with a fresh, delightful perspective.
Be sure to check out our 2011 Dayplanners. Keeping you on schedule and in style, we offer both Day-at-a-Time and Week-at-a-Time formats. Each dayplanner includes: monthly planners for 2011, holidays and celebrations for 2011, international dialing codes & emergency numbers, a world time zone chart, and a convenient, removable address book insert.
