The Story of Finchley… so far
Finchley Paper Arts Ltd. is a family run business.
We're committed to providing unique, iconic & mobile travel stationery creations. Each item that we create is a little piece of our personal passion, enchantment, and artistic visions. Our designs are born out of our love for the arts, combined with history, our worldwide collections and photographic endeavors.
While researching vintage ephemera, we came across a wealth of family genealogy data from Cambridge England. Some of the many passions of our family were bookstores, publishing and even a mobile library. In the 1740’s a large private library came up for auction. Our family purchased several books containing the personal bookplate of Lady Henrietta Cavendish Holles of Wellbeck Abbey in Sherwood Forest.
Finchley was the last home of our Great Grandparents before their immigration to Canada in the early 1900’s, we thought it fitting to use the Finchley name to re-establish our family in the publishing industry.
