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 mediaval motif called au seme, 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 colors and new materials brought mosaic binding into a new era of artistry.
