Geistreich by Patrizia Nicosia
A Fine Art Studio based in Switzerland, Basel, offering artful stationery and calligraphy for refined couples.
Meet Patrizia Nicosia
The many small details available to our sensual perception mean the world to me. I love the haptic of handmade papers, the smell of slowly and carefully poured wax seals, the sensation of a light and smooth silk ribbon, the way it feels to write in calligraphy script with my Obliquepen & to draw illustrations of beautiful architectured designs by hand. It is my deepest passion to combine all of these beautiful details to make a timeless, one-of-a-kind wedding stationery for you.
Ever since I was a little girl something inside me told me that, one day, I would have my own little studio. I just didn't know what I'd do there yet, but I simply felt it was waiting for me:
It took me a few years to figure out what my passion is, and I tried a lot of new things in the process. Then back in 2016, I found that my heart belongs to calligraphy.
As an enthusiastic autodidact, I believe that we can achieve anything if it comes from the heart and if we do it with passion. After a decade of working in a bank as a consultant, I quit my job to become a calligrapher and designer for wedding stationery. And I am living my dream, just as Mark Twain said: “Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
Lots of love,
Smooth handmade paper, rich inks, and the touch of silk for that extra charm.
Creating elegant pieces for romantic lovers with a modern touch, weaving stories with ink and paper.
Between the rhythmic hum of my 1905 printing press, the quiet dance of ink on paper and exploring cultures & their food.
