The cover of Paperblanks Gold Inlay Address Book reproduces a `Stil der Neorenaissance` design popular in nineteenth-century Germany. The original binding, composed of solid metal, was covered in a fine layer of gold which was then meticulously engraved by skilled craftsmen. Bindings like this were highly valued and were frequently adorned with silk, `cloisonne` enamels or precious stones.
