gótico-mudéjar style

A variation of the MUDÉJAR STYLE , i.e., mudéjar bindings influenced by Gothic techniques. Such bindings were executed from the 13th to the 15th centuries largely in the northeastern pat of Spain. The style has affinities with a class of early Italian bindings in which the plan of decoration is Gothic, but the execution is carried out with small tools similar to those used on mudéjar bindings. The bindings are usually ofCORDOVAN LEATHER and most have wooden boards. (330 )
