About Us

Magnani Papers Australia has been importing and distributing Fine Art and Book papers from the Magnani paper mill in Italy since 1980. Unfortunately, last year, the paper mill in Pescia near Florence in Italy closed it's doors. It is being put back together by the Cordenons paper group. Click here for a full report.

Magnani Papers Australia is Australia's only specialist Fine Art and Book papers shop. That's all we do. We have years of experience in paper manufacturing and printing, and a truly specialist knowledge of all the papers we sell. Backed up by fantastic service, competitive pricing, kickass packaging and door to door delivery Australia wide, we aim to please.

Right now our stocks are limited. We have small amounts of some printmaking, painting and book papers left. Click here for a full list of the mould made papers we still have.

We also have good stocks of our lovely hard bound journals or sketch books. They come in a range of cover colours and sizes, and are made with truly exceptional 120 gsm book papers. 

The Magnani paper mill manufactured beautiful stationery from 100% cotton handmade papers. We have stocks of some of these lines, treat yourself or a friend to some of the lovelies writing and correspondence papers and cards ever made, some with matching envelopes. 

Finally we still have some of the hen's teeth rare handmade sheets, 100% cotton in 48 x 66 cm sheets. Once these sheets are gone, it is unlikely that you will ever find handmade papers of this superb quality, suitable for limited edition books and printmaking ever again. The mill has closed for ever.

We will still deliver Beautiful art and printmaking paper directly to your door.

There are few fine art paper manufacturers with the history and reputation of Magnani Papers. Established in 1404, the Magnani Mill was up until its closure last year, the oldest continuously running paper mill in the modern world.

Artists, art suppliers, educational institutions, printmakers and anyone with an appreciation for beauty and quality know that Magnani is one of the best art and printmaking paper brands in the world.

So whilst we may not have much to sell you just now, you can still enjoy the benefits of specialised experience, care and a unique relationship that links you to the incredible Italian artisans at the heart of this exquisite range. Expertise and advice you can trust.

We love paper as much as you do. We understand the subtleties of grade, texture and what papers are best for which media.
