    Safavid Leather Address Book

    Safavid Leather Address Book

    I was given this beautiful new address book with leather filigree to go with my new house.

    It is an amazing piece of workmanship and I will treasure it greatly. Cobalt blue features heavily in Persian art and architecture.

    I have promised myself to write neatly in this book. My hand writing has deteriorated badly since the advent of computers and every entry will be made using an old fountain pen to make me write slowly and carefully.

    "Book Art From a Golden Age"

    "Amid the many jewels of ancient Islam, decorative book binding shines particularly bright. Symmetry and refinement of line are the hallmarks of these bindings, ranging in style over many centuries from the simply tooled geometric patterns of the 14th century to the complex compositions of the 16th century.

    Associated with the Islamic Golden Age, the Persian Safavid-style designs represented a high point for the art of the book. These bindings feature centralized designs of medallions, quadrants, plant and animal motifs, a pentagonal envelope flap closure and elaborately decorated doublures (interior covers), exquisite creations in cut-out leather, coloured papers and gilding.

    This doublure inspired collection portrays a remarkable leather filigree pattern incorporating handtooled surfaces and motives which retain an elegance and style even in our modern context."
