To the ancient Greeks, it was considered an antidote against drunkenness. To the Tibetans, it was deemed to be sacred. In the Middle ages, it was only allowed to be worn by royalty. As one of the Old World's Cardinal Gems, it was one of five gems considered more valuable than all others, until Brazil was found to have stockpiles of it. For our latest Limited Edition pocket notebook, we chose the gem known as Amethyst for inspiration. As we looked for a theme for our next limited edition, we search long and hard for something unique. We wanted to use foil on the cover but also incorporate some neat design features.
The choice of the gem Amethyst came from the selection of the paper. Some months ago, French Paper Company released a limited edition paper stock. French Paper's VIVITONE Plum Punch is a beautiful purple that gave us so many ideas. One, the Amethyst gem fit us personally so much. With the help of our production assistant, we came up with a geometric design, we feel interprets the concept of the Amethyst gem. The cover incorporates both letterpress and foil geometric design elements. As always made with our great paper suitable for pens and pencils.
