A ravishing journal with a cover of classically stylish Italian hand-marbled paper.
The technique used to create the marbling requires great skill and precision, and has been used in Italy since the 17th century. A shallow basin is filled with a thick, vegetable-based liquid, and its surface is sprinkled with different colours. The craftsman creates patterns in these colours using combs or wooden rods, and then gently places the paper on the surface of the liquid without disturbing the design. It only takes a few seconds for the paper to absorb the colours, then the decoration is complete.
Each journal contains blank (unlined) pages of pure cotton paper with the Il Papiro watermark (visible when backlit) which is a delight to write on with fountain pen or rollerball.
Made in Italy.
