There's nothing like an old book. It's delicate and distinctive. It's robust and full of history. It has a unique perfume of intelligence and wisdom and basement and magic. But you shouldn't write in old books and, unless you have a time machine, you can't write your own old books. Well, now at least you can write your own things in books that LOOK old with these Antiquarian Signature Lined Journals.

These gorgeous books come in three flavors. How to choose? Here's a rundown of their respective histories: 
  • Azure: This is based on a 1688 copy of L'office de la Semaine Sainte - now living in the collection of the Dusseldorf Museum Kunstpalast. This style of binding took tremendous skill and time, so was reserved for books of great importance. 
  • Lindau: The covers of the Lindau Gospels were designed to inspire awe in early Christian onlookers. The book was carried in processions and displayed on altars. Its component parts originate from different times and places; the back cover is recorded as being created near Salzburg between 750 and 800 AD. 
  • Maya Blue: The binding of the Antiquarian Compendium Aubergine Blank Book is based on a book created in Strasbourg, France in 1697 to house Paradiesgärtlein, a text by Johann Arndt (1555–1621). To achieve the gilded and polished motif, a base layer of silver sheets was first die cut, and elaborate grooves were then meticulously etched into its surface.
