Description

The fascinating spider’s web design of the Patron of Art Edition Octavian is adapted from a design typical of the 1920s and it also remembers the elaborate web of power that the well-known Emperor Octavian Augustus managed to weave during his Empire. Gaius Octavian, honored by the Roman Senate with the name Augustus, was the driving force behind the cultural revival of the epoch that followed numerous years of war. By means of cunning tactical moves, strategic liaisons with powerful Romans, and deliberate promotion of the arts, Octavian created an elaborate network of culture. Because of his support for the construction of splendid public buildings, which made Rome a city of marble and a powerhouse of artistic and intellectual endeavor, his name is forced connected with the heyday of the Roman Empire.
