Florentine Papers

Florentine papers are by far my favorite - for bookbinding and everything else! When I'm done with my grimoire, I'm going to pick another Florentine paper for whatever my next project may be. These papers are so beautiful! They are inspired by traditional Italian patterns from the Renaissance and are now made by Rossi Cartotecnica in Florence, Italy, just like they were centuries ago. I have samples of some of these patterns, and I can tell you that the pictures do not do them justice. The pigments are so vibrant, with gold accents that are harder to see in the picture. Even so, you should really click on the picture to see the full size image. If you're interested in these papers, the best selection I have found is at Paper Mojo on this page.
