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 Compendium Aubergine Blank Books.

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. The Antiquarian Compendium Aubergine Blank Book is unlined and closes with magnetic metal clasps to keep your doodles, sketches, diagrams, musings, and everything else you put in it secure. The word "filigree" derives from the Latin words filum (thread) and granum (seed). So, let the filigree on the Antiquarian Compendium Aubergine Blank Book be the seed that starts your many threads of inspiration!
