A Light-Filled New England Art Studio

Born and raised in Rome, Angela Liguori first apprenticed in the book arts in a studio in Bologna, where she learned the traditional style of bookbinding while simultaneously completing a university degree in Renaissance art history. Today, this multi-talented designer can be found dreaming up new wonders in her sunlit studio in Brookline, MA. Studio Carta specializes in custom-made stationery, invitations, and hand-bound, limited edition books, as well as cotton ribbon imported directly from Italy. (Angela is the exclusive importer and the only US source for these high-quality ribbons.) Here’s a look at her inspiring workspace.

Above: Packages of antique stamps, which Angela uses for her handmade books and cards, sit next to a vintage press from 1928 (coincidentally, the same year that Angela’s father was born).

Above: Available in myriad widths, hues, patterns and weaves, Angela’s ribbon selection is so vast it’s literally floor-to-ceiling.

Above: One of Angela’s passions, pins from Merchant Mills and elsewhere are frequently featured in Angela’s packaging and projects.

Cute shop. I don't know I would dare make a business of it, though.
