The new issue of Pulp throws a spotlight on Fabriano, the Fedrigoni Group 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.
Articles in Pulp 23 include ‘Artists on paper’, which lists some of the outstanding individuals, from Michelangelo to Bridget Riley, who have painted, drawn and written on Fabriano’s papers over time. ‘Fabriano today’, profiles the company’s innovation and growth, while ‘A life in paper’ by Paolo Ferrarini examines Pentagram’s elegant rebrand of Carlo Cattaneo’s original logotype.
In ’Rebirth of a paper mill’, Chiara Medioli Fedrigoni tells the story of the Pioraco mill, before and after the 2016 earthquake, while ‘The art of the swatch’ looks at Nicola D’Arcangelo’s extraordinary swatch books for Fabriano.
This edition is printed on Materica Terra Rossa, LifeEco100 White, Stucco Tintoretto Gesso, X-Per White, Freelife Kendo and Fabriano Rusticus Bianco for the cover. The postal packaging was made from Fabriano Murillo Rosso Fuoco.
