At the top of each page is placed the Sorte number (the variety) and the paper's name. There are 48 different types of decorated paper. Bound in wraps of leather-like paper lined with floral paper. Upper tips bent, one fore edge with closed tear. Very good. Item #18107
These papers present a great variety of style and textures: geometric patterned, floral, glazed, marbled, batiked, checkered, crumpled, veined, reptilian, and papers that look and feel like cloth and pigskin. Probably intended for in-house use rather than for distribution to customers, this catalogue of papers has no identification. They are similar to the papers in Princeton's Graphic Arts Library from A. Nees & Co. Nees who was one of several famous decorative paper manufacturers in Aschaffenberg.
