Conti Borbone shop

Since 1873, the bookbinding Conti Borbone of Milan is a historic workshop specializing in book binding and in paper and furnishing articles. This ancient art requires expert and skilled hands for a meticulous work: marbled and hand-prepared papers, the preparation of rich and discreet impressions in gold / silver or dry (the only hot impression). The personalization of leather objects (initials, names) was much appreciated. In this atmosphere of craftsmanship of other times, graceful and special paper objects are produced such as photo albums, diaries, notebooks, note books, board books, signature books, containers, magazine racks and other curious artifacts. Who would expect that shelving of fine books to be instead a panel that conceals a closet where dull papers lie, or that that pile of books on the table is actually a hiding place for precious objects?
