French Pinwheel Mini Letterpress Notebook - Mademoiselle
This design originates in 18th Century France, and designs like this were called Papier Dominote. France was an active producer of these patterned papers, which were used as end sheets in books, coverings for books, and wallpaper.
Notebook measures 4" x 5 1/8" and has 40 ruled pages.
These block printed papers use archival oil-based inks, and are placed in a press. Essentially the process is the same, with a few alterations.
They are letterpress printed in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Papillon Press uses Neenah Cotton for the block printed designs, and interior sheets are from French Paper Co.
Notebooks are letterpress printed and labels are hand-stamped in-house, and all items include a belly band.
Printed on 70# Text Paper in the United States of America.
