Nowhere is the heft and glory of history more palpable than in the book arts. The 19th century brought several innovations, both functional and æsthetic, to the craft of bookbinding. Our reproduction of an antique French binding is based on a cover designed in 1829 by publishers A. & W. Galignani for The Poetical Works of Thomas Moore. This cover suggests the fine Moroccan leather preferred for bindings of that era, as well as the structural sturdiness, careful finishing and ridged spine venerated by discerning bibliophiles.
