Parisian Mosaic

The splendor of polychromatic patterns

Our Parisian Mosaic Collection was inspired by an eighteenth-century leather mosaic binding executed in Paris by master binder Nicolas-Denis Derome. Descended from a renowned family of bookbinders, his works were much sought after as they showed a unique flair for lightness and vivacity of design.

This gold-tooled and polychromatic cover recalls a medieval motif called au semé, which consists of small decorative patterns arranged in symmetrical lines or columns resembling a sown field. The adoption of this ancient heraldic motif combined with fresh colours and new materials brought mosaic binding into a new era of artistry.
