"The Florentine Collection combines European design and craftsmanship with a contemporary dynamic. The products are the culmination of over 40 years' experience as a master bookbinder. Trained in Germany, I now practice in the Bay Area, where I remain dedicated to form, style, and quality in the creation of objects of distinction. It is my aspiration to create books and artfully crafted writers' implements that withstand the test of time and have value as heirlooms, as I believe that memories should be treasured.
The objects of this growing collection are created to be pleasing to the eye, luxurious to the touch, and functional to use. The harmonies between color and form are intentionally engaged to lift the mood, as befitting the power of both beauty and style.
May you enjoy using these rare and sumptuous items as much as I enjoy making them."
