Stones of Florence Postcard set

Set of 8 different postcards

Images printed on Fabriano Fine Art Paper

Also backed with a Fabriano paper

Each postcard is ~ 4¼ x 6 inches (10.6 x 15.4 cm)


Send someone a little piece of Florence with one of these images of the city’s beautiful stone detailing. (Mary McCarthy knew what she was talking about when she titled her classic narrative The Stones of Florence. With eight postcards in the set, there might even be a few left for yourself. The images are printed on heavyweight Fabriano, with a hint of texture that’s perfectly suited to portraying this collection of rich stone elements photographed during my day-to-day life in Florence.

Each postcard is backed with a smooth, warm white Fabriano, giving it a luxurious weight in the hand. The back is free for your message or musings (except for a brief description of the image & © PaperSynthesis in the lower left corner). The postcards are presented in a folded card and protected by a clear archival sleeve.
