Latest news

Welcome to our website

Spring is not yet here, but our website already has something new for 2018. It is now possible to place orders and pay for them directly via our safe online payment system, for a fast delivery to France or elsewhere.

At the end of February we shall be heading for the pretty village of Montreuil-Bellay (49260) where we will participate in Le Livre et ses Métiers d'Art salon held at the Nobis priory on 24th- 25th February. This particularly lively and enjoyable event is of interest for both amateurs and professionals, and features paper makers, marblers, engravers, calligraphers, leather tanners, binders, restorers, etc. as well as short conferences on many subjects.
We shall then be heading north to Orleans for the Salon des Antiquités et Collections, at the Parc Expo d'Orléans (45000), from 9th to 12th March, and then to Paris for the
Rare Books and Fine Art Fair at the Grand Palais from 13th to 15th April.
We have a few invitations for these two salons, so do not hesitate to contact us if you would like one. We will send it to you - while stock lasts.
And if in the meantime you are tempted by a little visit to Anjou, we are always delighted to receive visitors...
