PINNACLE/RESTORATION WASHI TAPE 2 PACK
Using authentic Japanese washi tape paper, gold foiling and a touch of varnish for protection, Pinnacle/Restoration washi tape set will bring a pop of colour to your bullet journal spread. This double-pack is inspired a 1675 book binding.
Nobility and grace are restored in this filigreed design. Originally crafted by the Queens’ Binder “A,” one of the most prolific binders of the Restoration period, the balance of open space and intricate elements makes it a shining jewel of the period. The binding reproduced here was designed to hold Richard Allestree’s The Government of the Tongue. As provost of Eton College, Allestree was an esteemed clergyman and royalist, and it is no surprise that the Queens’ Binder was commissioned to bind his work.
Modern research indicates that the Queens’ Binder was in fact four distinct shops, and even individual binders such as “A” could refer to multiple artisans. While the name of the binder called “A” is not known, there is no doubt as to the regency of this gilt binding, which is now a part of the Henry Davis gift at the British Library.
