Paper Neighborhood - Italianate Style Rubber Stamps

To all the rubber stamp fans and old architecture enthusiasts out there, this is a pretty sweet find. This box of Italianate Trappings endorsed by the Cincinnati Society of Rubber Architects is needed for the construction of a paper neighborhood.

With just a can containing 21 pieces of wood-mounted rubber stamps depicting Italianate style, you can design awesome buildings on paper. The set also include a stamp pad and an instruction manual.

Italianate Architecture is a style that was common in Cincinnati, Ohio during the 19th century. You can view such examples on the streets.
