Medioevalis - Artist Pads
Medioevalis is a line of fine stationery that Rossi 1931 initiated many decades ago and have continually refined using the Amalfi paper-making process. These high quality artist pads with cream-colored sheets and deckled edges come in two sizes, medium and large, and make great sketch or drawing pads. They are also excellent for artists working in wet media such as watercolor, tempera, acrylic or collage-making. Deckled edges add an elegant touch and distinctive flair to these artist pads and the top edge is self-deckling. With its distinctive Italian style and grace, beautiful texture and delicate feathery deckle edges, Rossi Medioevalis stationery is easily distinguishable from similar products; no detail has been neglected. The Rossi Medioevalis stationery line is safe for letterpress printing and engraving. Not for use with fountain pen ink or calligraphy ink.
What are Deckle Edges?
Deckled stationery represents old world craftsmanship. When the paper-making process changed in the 19th century and smooth edges appeared, the deckle edge slowly emerged as a status symbol. The feather edge is the result of the stationery sheets being naturally and carefully torn. These artist pads have a self-deckling top edge that's revealed when you tear the page off.
