Once upon a time, paper was precious and books and illuminated manuscripts were precious works of art. Now as we work toward a less paper-heavy society, books and other printed works are once again more valuable as works of art rather than simple reading matter. We've seen a whole spate of luxury books and Gilded Age Greetings takes the world of greeting cards back to a luxury level with a line of hand-crafted, heirloom-quality greetings embellished with 23K gold. One line, the Grand Couture line, even includes handset cabochon jewels, including amethyst, emeralds, rubies, and red and green garnets.
