Cards by Roger La Borde

I first noticed Roger la Borde when I saw cards from their 'Haute Couture' range (by Paula Sanz). As it turns out, Roger la Borde has worked with a range of beloved authors and graphic designers, showcasing their work in cards and gifts.

The site is divided into 4 product areas: (1)Roger la Borde, (2)Idee Fixe (3)First Press and (4)Petit la Borde.
