The Aurelia design is fit for a king. Its inspiration is a leather book bound in Paris in 1748 that held copies of King Louis XV’s procedures for Holy Week. French nobility and their bookbinders were not noted for their restraint in the use of gold embellishment, and this gilt-edged cover is no exception. 

Originally crafted by Pierre-Paul Dubuisson, this design is a marvellous riot of gold-tooled rococo elements such as birds, flowers, and leaves. Dubuisson was himself bookbinding royalty of a sort—he became the King’s official bookbinder in 1758.
