Beginning in the 13th century, the town of Fabriano was one of the first places in Europe to make high-quality paper on an industrial scale, and enjoyed prosperity in the Late Middle Ages and Renaissance as a result. This legacy has endured through to the present day. The fine watermarked paper produced in Fabriano is a success story with a rich and complex history that involves a fascinating array of stories and personalities, many of which have been researched, collected and celebrated in this impeccable anniversary publication. Several types of Fabriano paper are used in the binding, and the book includes step-by-step instructions on making your own paper as well.
