Overview

Ten sheets of wrapping paper with matching tear-out gift tags featuring a selection of the richly ornamented papers—many originally used by bookbinders—held at the British Library

Rich in ornamentation, decorated papers have been in use for centuries—as wrappers and endpapers for books, as the backing for playing cards, and even as linings for chests and cases. Yet despite the many contexts in which they can be found, they often go unnoticed. The Olga Hirsch collection at the British Library contains some of the best and most exquisite examples of decorated paper.

This set includes ten sheets of wrapping paper with matching tear-out gift tags featuring a selection of these stunning papers.
