This small shop still binds books and makes marble paper by hand. The front of the shop has a lovely selection of books, journals, frames, paper etc and you can see the artists in the back creating the items (printing the paper, sewing the bindings). It is an exquisite shop and a marvelous opportunity to see true craftsmen at work.

This place is fantastic. We were able to purchase and personalize leather writing journals for ourselves and family... either refillable or with paper permanently stiched inside.

will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past
