Fabriano is the brand named after the Italian town in which its mills were founded in 1264 and whose papers have been loved and used by artists ever since. Issue #23 of Pulp magazine tells us about Fabriano, which has been part of Fedrigoni for two decades and continues to produce fine papers.
In this issue:
– “Artists on Paper,” the outstanding individuals, from Michelangelo to Bridget Riley, who have painted, drawn and written on Fabriano’s papers over time.
– “Fabriano Today,” the company’s path of innovation and growth.
– “A Life for Paper,” examines Pentagram’s elegant rebrand of Carlo Cattaneo’s original logotype.
– “Rebirth of a Paper Mill,” Chiara Medioli Fedrigoni tells the story of the Pioraco mill, before and after the 2016 earthquake.
– “The Art of the Sample” looks at Nicola D’Arcangelo’s extraordinary swatch books for Fabriano.
The striking cover shows a detail of Giulia Orecchia’s artwork for Fabriano’s Festival del Disegno 2022, coming later this year.
