The Jennings Bros. open book design is an elegant tribute, to one of the greatest literary icons of the Western world.  Dante’s first book, La Vita Nouva, written in 1295, describes the inexplicable, instantaneous spark of pure love he felt when he first saw Beatrice.  His last book, the epic poem, Divine Comedy, also inspired by his unrequited “courtly love” for Beatrice, is considered one of the greatest works of world literature.
