About This Collection


Rossi 1931

Founded by Antonio Rossi in Florence, Italy

Continually operated by the Rossi family in the traditional letterpress process.



Rossi 1931 is family owned and operated paper-making company in Florence, Italy - operating since 1931.

These unique Italian designs, dating from the fifteenth and sixteenth century, are printed on high-quality soft paper.

This entire collection is made with the family's traditional letterpress.

Developed in the 14th century, letterpress printing involves setting type and motifs in reverse on a letterpress plate.
The plate is then inked and pressed onto the surface of the paper.
The pressing process transfers the ink and leaves a deep impression on the paper creating a three-dimensional print that has a feel unlike any other type of printing.
The nature of printing demands a high quality and generally heavier weight paper that will not tear or thin when pressed.
Created with a perfect type of paper containing fibers that are soft and readily accept an impression as well as ink.
As you might expect, letterpress printing is both time-consuming and labor-intensive.
Prints are made one at a time with each print having its own unique variations of ink coverage and depth of impression.
