The Story

About Paper & Cities

Founded by Alex Zouaghi passionate traveler, photographer and blogger (when he finally manages to put his two kids to sleep!), Paper and Cities sells everything from prints of our favorite cities to colourful cards and beautiful stationery with one ambition: Offering quality products with a heart.

Because for each print we sell, Paper and Cities commits to plant one tree to help reforesting the planet and protecting our environment. A little gesture that we are proud to support with World Land Trust.

Our prints are created by talented and independent artists. It is our mission to support local talents and give them a voice to express their creativity and passion.

Ethical, responsible and incredibly cute (yes, it’s OK to feel proud about ourselves right?), we, at Paper and Cities, believe that big changes come from every little steps, so why don’t you join us in this beautiful adventure, and help us saving this world, one print at a time! I bet you too feel pretty proud about yourself now 😉

From London with ♥,
Alex,

Roberta Spettoli

Bologna, Italy

She loves cats and animals, nature and everything regarding magic and fantasy. Libraries and museums are her haven when she needs to relax, and they become timeless places in which Roberta can lose herself and nourish her imagery.
