The cover of this Paperblanks A4 notebook is modelled after a book cover owned by Jean Grolier (1479-1565). He was one of the most demanding collectors in the history of fine books. Although he was a Frenchman, he preferred that his bindings follow the design principles of his Italian friend, Aldus Manutius, the greatest printer of the Renaissance. Each of his books was of exceptional quality, in a style described as both "quiet and simple, yet rich".
