Rolling Paper is typographic dream. For decades typographers and designers have been waiting for a publication just like this one — they just didn’t know it until now.

Rolling paper was clearly a highly prized consumer product and an enormous amount of care was taken to create a look and feel that would appeal. The color, texture and size were all vital to an individual brand’s success.

This unique collection presents 540 different kinds of rolling paper plus seventy posters. Brands featured include Amber (1876), Cine (1900), Malvarrosa (1903), Bambu (1907), and Remeditos (1908). Another interesting aspect of this title is that it provides the opportunity for the viewer to observe the influence of historical moments on advertising and design.
