Fiamma: Lined Mini Journal
A Venetian morning is alight with marvels. From sunlight sparkling on water to the startling hues of incomparable architecture, Venice enchants the eye from first light to last gloaming.
The cover is inspired by a Venetian binding for a Renaissance-era book containing two treatises on colors. The discourses in the book focused on the meaning and application of colors in heraldic motifs and instructions for creating and interpreting coats of arms. Strange subject matter today, but at the time these were popular topics, especially for the ruling classes.
The design dates back to the early 1600s and was originally crafted from red morocco leather with gold borders, checkers of green, red, blue and brown in the midfield. The checkered pattern can be interpreted as a reference to the coats of arms mentioned in the book’s contents.
