PROA MANUSCRIPT BOOK
This book is a celebration of quality and style. It is the perfect companion of your adventures, be they around the globe or in the intimacy of your thoughts.
The Proa Manuscript Book takes its name from the distinctive shape of its clasp, wich echoes that of traditional South Pacific proa vessels. These multi-hull ships were first documented by Magellan's expedition in what became the first voyage around the world. They have since featured in the journals of generations of travellers.
Pervolō is a latin word meaning I fly through. Flying is an action that cannot be interrupted, lest it be transformed into falling.
Pervolō is a celebration of our zest for books, our urge to write and our desire to preserve the words we love. These are emotions that cannot be constrained, they fly on.
