Founded in Florence in 1856, Giulio Giannini and Sons is one of the most ancient active bookbinding workshops in the world. The workshop is now run by 6th generation family members, in particular Maria, in a tiny shop near Palazzo Pitti, in the heart of the Oltrarno, Florence craftsmanship heaven. Giannini bookbinders use parchment decorated with gold leaf and hard covers in colored leather, taking inspiration from models that go back to the 14th century. Emblematic of an epoch, Giannini contributed to define the “Florentine Style” in the history of bookbinding.
