About This Design

  • Original Art: Ornamental leather book binding
  • Era: early 1800s
  • Region: Urbino, Italy

In the late 15th century during the rule of Federico da Montefeltro, who earned himself the moniker “the Light of Italy” for his support of arts and sciences, Urbino blossomed as a hub of cultural and commercial activity. Perched idyllically on a hillside, its ancient city wall and medieval buildings are still standing and the original winding cobbled streets are largely intact. Urbino is now a protected UNESCO World Heritage site where one can appreciate the elegance and glory of Renaissance architecture.

The city is framed by the scenic setting of the vineyards and olive groves of its two river valleys. Metauro is the name of the river flowing through this Marche region. This cover design is marked by a sense of balance between the lavishly embossed gilt and the simple pattern created with repeated use of a single stamp, set against a river-blue background.

The ideals cultivated during the Renaissance continue to have a strong influence on Western society. It is our honour to dedicate the Jewel of Urbino series to a city that provided such a nourishing environment for the cultural regeneration of Europe.
