French Stationery

I spotted these lovely pieces while walking past Olivier De Sercey's shop on Rue de Bac. I love the restraint and old-world elegance of engraved invitations and would like to see the return of traditional formats (like the book fold invitations shown below), but in letterpress of course!

Below are some samples of old-school correspondence and calling cards. Aren't these just stunning in their simplicity?
