Signum is part of a company, founded almost thirty years ago, founded on the principles of enhancement and dissemination of the historical, artistic and cultural heritage of the Florentine tradition of craftsmanship; Signum produces high quality products characterized by rigorous hand production, the quality of materials and the refinement of design. In the last decade the activity has focused on the production of leather and paper bookbinding articles, keeping alive the link with the techniques and materials of the past, with the wisdom of the historical tradition of craftsmanship perpetrated thanks to the master bookbinder, a talented craftsman who has increased his skills and knowledge during long periods of activity as a restorer at the National Library of Florence.
The catalogue also includes useful objects for learning ancient writing techniques, but also reproductions of historical maps, planispheres, as well as pleasant “playful” objects, such as puzzles, dolls and multicoloured kaleidoscopes. A must-have on our shelves is the character of Pinocchio who comes to life from the pen of the famous Carlo Collodi, an authentic Florentine, to whom we wanted to pay tribute by creating many products that represent the protagonists of the fairy tale that all children love and have loved. A world made of puppets, theaters and dreams … whose charm few can resist.
