Brocaded Paper

Gold leaf blocking on leather and parchment had been practiced in Europe since the early 16th Century. From 1698 onward this technique was applied to paper. What became known as brocaded paper was produced in a relief printing process. These journal cover designs are based on some beautiful examples of this sumptuous variety of coloured paper from various European collections.
