A Venetian morning is alight with marvels. From the sunlight dancing with the water to the water reflecting the startling hues of incomparable architecture, Venice enchants the eye from first light to last gloaming, from close to a far. The covers of the Venetian Mornings range attempts to mimic and pay tribute to the splendid daybreak palette of the ancient city. Inspired by a Renaissance binding for a book called 'The Treatise on Colours', the original dates back to the early 1600s, crafted from red morocco leather with fine gold borders and checkers of green, red, blue and brown in the midfield, complete with lace fillets and marbled endpapers. These covers embrace the Renaissance value of cultural rebirth by representing an ancient book binding with contemporary bookmaking techniques.
