Printing a photo is the metamorphosis into a tangible memory that lasts over time. The photo album allows you to take a further step: it allows you to build a story, a description of your choice, combining and exposing the photos in a specific visual path.
All our photo albums are made exclusively by hand. The materials come from a careful selection. The realization, from our special marbled papers to the first grain leathers, is treated in detail and is aimed at satisfying the tastes of the customers with various possibilities of customization. The albums are available in different sizes from the typically Italian format and contain 50 ivory-colored pages and tissue paper to protect the photographs. We give shape to the customer's ideas making him the protagonist of the album through the engraving in gold-silver-dry (only hot impression) of the names of the spouses, of the date or initials.
In addition to the photo albums on display, we create ad hoc models in any format and capacity (which are completed with our boxes for albums or artisan binders), giving shape to the ideas of the client. The wise and creative use of precious materials has made us popular among the spouses of every social class, meeting both the classic and elegant taste and the most current and essential design.

Coming from ancient China and Japan ("floating ink" - Suminagashi), the marbled paper spread in Persia, in Turkey (Ebru paper - "cloud") until it reached Europe in the 17th century. where it is adopted by Macè Ruette, bookbinder at the Court of Louis XIII King of France who officially promoted him to the rank of "Relieur do Roi". The Conti Borbone albums in full marbled paper enjoy considerable success as well as for the countless color combinations, especially for the fluid and dynamic design that gives them modernity and imagination.
