Giulio Giannini & Figlio/Florence

    Food apart, paper junkies come to Florence for the above.
With what astounding greed I eye the window at my favorite paper shop!
All the paper is made on the premises. I want all of it: books, cards, wrapping paper.......

               ........ the little books to write important stuff in.... 
Books I Have Read, Hotels I Have Stayed In and so on and so forth....

      And then all those lovely notelets to write all the thank you letters 
for all the presents I have been sent and the yummy dinners I have eaten.....

               Then the paper itself!-- looking like the end papers in leather-bound
books in quarto and folio and half-calf and so on....

Send me all of it soonest.
