Delicacy & Its Delights
The Romantics viewed the world as a place where delicacy and modesty combined to create perfection. Poetical observations of nature, and feelings of tenderness and melancholy, were preoccupations of the Romantic mind. Gentle books of sensibility were the perfect accessory for those moments of contemplation in the garden that led to impulses of genius. Inspired by the antique gilt-embossed leather binding from an 1843 volume of “The Poetical Remains of Henry Kirke White of Nottingham,” this sublime cover design is certain to bring out the romantic in anyone.
