Inspired by an 18th Century paper by Benoist Huquier in Orleans, France, it is faithfully reproduced by hand printing the design in dark brown, and all the details are hand colored as it would have been done originally. Comprising of roses and other foliage, a bird, and texture called picotage, the design is stunning and would look great framed. The original of this paper was used as endpapers in a book.
Notebooks with this design on the cover are available here.
