The ethereal blue Astra design comes from Missale Sacri Ordinis Praedicatorum, a volume containing instructions and texts for priests to use at mass throughout the year, published in Rome by Octavio Puccinelli in 1768. Rather than creating ornate patterns that filled every corner, 18th-century binders directed their efforts toward fashioning exquisite frames, leaving the middle section blank or featuring a central object to complete the composition.
In this design the middle contains the monogram “IHS,” with a cross on top and a heart pierced with three nails just below. It represents the first three letters of the name “Jesus” when written in Greek—a subtle reference to the book’s contents in a design that otherwise impresses with its opulence of a secular kind.
