Le Cose Belle di Alberto Cozzi

Another joyous session of paper marbling here in Florence – two very talented guests enjoyed a morning session with Riccardo Luci at the long running family business of Alberto Cozzi.


The business uses marbled paper for blank book binding as well as for making the interiors and the pages of books look more beautiful. Like so many things in Florence even the tools they use for stamping gold leaf motifs on books have been in use before most of us were born!

But before we watched Riccardo burn our initials on books there was marbled paper to be made – with great concentration!
