Marbled Twine: Lined Mini Journal
The original book that was used for creating this cover contained a selection of prayers written by Maria Joseph Clement Kaukol, a secretary to Clement Augustus, Archbishop Elector of Cologne. Only a limited number of copies were bound, so that the archbishop could present these as special gifts to his friends. The book was created in 1729, most likely in Cologne or Bonn, and it was embellished with engravings, calligraphic inscriptions and ornamental vignettes. As for the cover itself, the simple strips of the double frame were decorated with vines stylized in the Rococo fashion of serpentine shapes and ornaments, not unlike a twisting piece of twine.
