A curated collection of wrapping paper sheets and matching gift tags from John Derian’s exquisite collection of 19th-century paper designs. The book includes 12 perforated wrapping paper sheets—from flowers to oceans and everything in between—that detach and unfold to 18 7/8" by 25 3/4", along with 12 matching gift tags.
John Derian first caught the eye of tastemakers and design gurus with his now iconic collectible plates, decoupaged with 19th-century artwork sourced from old and rare books. Derian’s home goods empire has since grown to global recognition, including the New York Times bestseller John Derian Picture Book, which perfectly captures the artist’s unique and timeless eye.
Now, for the first time ever, comes a new line of stationery, including wrapping paper, notebooks, puzzles, wall decals, stickers, and more. Each product in the John Derian stationery line features 19th-century imagery, including lush florals, expressive animals, abstract patterns, and hand-drawn letters, all bursting with personality, color, and nostalgia.
John Derian is an artist and designer who transforms printed images from the past, and in doing so transports the viewer to another world. He established John Derian Company Inc. in 1989, and his decoupage plates, platters, paperweights, coasters, and bowls are still entirely handmade in his studio in New York City, where he employs a small staff of artisans to assist with production. His designs are sold at upscale home stores, in catalogs, and at gift shops worldwide, and he has designed exclusive collections for Cisco Brothers, Astier de Villatte, Target, and more. His retail shops, studio, and homes have been featured in Vogue, T: The New York Times Style Magazine, The World of Interiors, Elle Decor, and Vanity Fair, among others.
