The Poetry in Bloom journal takes its inspiration from a turn-of-the-century bookbinding, housed in the Spencer Collection at The New York Public Library. The original leather binding dates from 1910 and features intricate inlay designs and gilt edges. The centerpiece is a plant surrounded by chambers containing snowdrops and other richly hued and contrasting flowers, foliage and butterflies. The binding was used for The Sensitive Plant and Early Poems by Percy Bysshe Shelley and is a celebration of the creative spirit.

This reproduction journal features the sturdy yet incredibly flexible Smyth sewn technique. In the classic art of bookmaking, the sewing together of signatures (paper folded into groups of eight, sixteen or thirty-two pages) is seen as the heart of a well-made book, or journal in this case.
