Paperblanks Embellished Byron - Don Juan Manuscript Wrap (7 x 9)
Byron is a cornerstone of the romantic canon. He is the model for the Byronic hero, which refers to an idealized but flawed character. His impatience with what he called "sweating poesy" - overworked and overwritten verse - is a hallmark of romantic poetry. The autographed page featured here is an excerpt from Byron's most famous work, Don Juan.
The cover of this sturdy hard cover, thread-bound journal has been gold foiled, embossed and embellished until it's something very unique indeed, leaving the wonderful worn feel shown. The interior is filled with one of the finest papers for writing. Each sheet is 60 pound weight, with an extremely high opacity rating for minimal show-through. Hold a page up to the light, and you'll see the laid patterning. It takes pen and ink beautifully.

More about the Byron Manuscript Wrap Journal
Teetering on the razor's edge between artistic liberation and personal destruction, George Gordon, Lord Byron (1788-1824) was a writer of great power whose life was characterized by epic excess. Bryon was intimate with physical pain - the result of a deformed foot - and suffered a traumatic childhood, which seem to have created in him a powerful urge to both free the spirit though strong and masculine poetry and to court personal disaster with scandalous behaviour, including legendary affairs with men, married women and even his own sister.
Paperblanks journals feature striking printed images on their durable, hard covers. Beautifully made, each high-quality journal is sewn rather than glued. The pages open nicely and lie flat for ease of writing ... no lost pages in these journals. Instead, delight in a truly well-made object and let it remind you that the finest things in life are the ones that last.
