Materials and manufacturing

Antica Tipografia Biagini cares for every single product. It means that the ink is created every time and used on fine papers, then hand-bound using ancient techniques. Star Heidelberg machines, masterpieces of typographic engineering, print on soft Bristol paper using zinc plates created in the mid of the last century. Charm and elegance spring from the use of materials that bring about unique flavor and identity.

Matteo Valesi and Ines De Labra Jouin, the owners, both in their forties, education in humanities; Roberto and Antonio, the typographers, among the very few great connoisseurs of the hand composition with lead types and zinc or magnesium plates; and graphic designer Stefano Citti, specialized in drawings for typographical printing, form the small craft team, that has chosen to love and continue this wonderful job.
