Sumptuous Varieties Of Gold Decorated Paper
Gold leaf blocking on leather and parchment has been practiced in Europe since the early 16th century. When applied to paper in the late 17th century, this method of relief printing produced brocaded paper, which showcased European craftsmanship and æsthetic exuberance, employing various metalworking tools to cut patterns on thin sheets of copper or brass. The patterns – ribbons, tendrils, arabesques and floral blossoms – closely echo the sumptuous designs of leather wall coverings and silk damask of the time.
