remondini print

The original two colour Remondini woodblock print made on handmade yellow painted paper.

Remondini papers were made to be used to bind books or to decorate furniture.
The Remondini Press was based in Bassano del Grappa close to Padua.

The Remondinis began to produce these papers in the 18th century, around 1738, and soon became the most important press to produce this type of highly decorative print.

The papers became famous in Italy, Europe, Russia, the Ottoman Empire and America and were used to bind books or to decorate furniture: for instance La Fenice in Venice was decorated with Remonidini Papers in 1792.
