Silver Filigree Collection
Our Silver Filigree series celebrates the splendour of bindings decorated with filigree metalwork. Our Maya Blue and Blush Pink journals come from a 1697 edition of Johann Arndt’s Paradiesgärtlein, published in Strasbourg, then a part of the Kingdom of France. It was originally created by die cutting a thin metal plate to form a latticed ornament with an added embellishment of fine etchings. Aubergine’s origins lie in the early 1800s. It was crafted in Swabia, the southwestern part of Germany, by taking a simple metal plate and adorning it with fancy curlicues made from metal wire and tiny beads. Both books are now a part of the Museum Kunstpalast’s collection in Düsseldorf, Germany.
The original content of this metallic binding was Johann Arndt’s well-known work, Paradiesgärtlein (The Garden of Paradise), first published in 1612 as a response to Martin Luther’s Reformations. The cover of this 1697 edition was created in Strasbourg, France.
