Beautiful planner! Gorgeous quality leather, and soft pages with gold detail. My only reason for the 4 stars is there is a little confusion with the Italian/English calendar...but may teach me a little Italian so its not so bad, just wasn't expecting both. Still love it and will reorder next year!

Fine Leather Bindings

I've always loved book.
A real passion that grew up with me since childhood, when I usually ran out in the garden with a book stolen from my parent's studio to read it under a tree.

But being a reader has never been enough, I wanted more. So after college I went to study in Tourin's Fine Art Academy, where I graduated in Conservation of Cultural Heritage, and then I moved to Bologna' Academy to become a book restorer.
These were my happiest years: amazing art cities, great teachers able to convey and communicate us their love for paper, leather and bookbinding.

And now, being able to realize an entire book from A to Z, is an incredible satisfaction, and it's even more fulfilling to be appreciated by other book lovers!

How do you calculate a book's price and value?
Well, mainly considering how long you've worked on it, if it has been realized with handmade headbands, artisanal endpaper or leather cover and ,of course, how it has been sewn.
