The leather book binding that inspired this cover was decorated with metal studs in a technique known as pointillé. The original cover would have been created using hammered brass pins. Our version offers a lighter touch by showcasing the metallic pattern against a sweet pink background.
The original binding that inspired our Shimmering Delights series comes from classic bookbinding tradition, and it is truly the colour choices that are the highlight of these delicious covers! Originally crafted in Zurich, Switzerland, in 1798 on black, grained leather, this dotted cover design would have been created using the technique known as pointillé. One of the prettiest of the decorative arts, pointillé involves hammering brass studs or metal pins into a surface to create a feather-light pattern.
So, one may ask, how did we go from an archetypal Swiss pointillé bookbinding to these sumptuous, confectionery-inspired covers? Well, for this we truly went with our gut! Inspired by a gorgeous rainbow of macarons we indulged in one day, we began to play around with the delicious hues on our cover designs. We found that the slight shimmer of this dotted design combined perfectly with the pastel colours of these bite-sized desserts and the rest, as they say, is history!
Once we had decided on a confectionery theme it was clear that this lovely pink colour must be known as Cotton Candy. This sweet cover is sure to produce shivers of delight in everyone who uses one of these notebooks. But we cannot be blamed if it causes a strange yearning for something sweet!
