The shop in Régiposta Street has been serving stationery and leather enthusiasts since 2000. At first it only sold diaries, wrapping papers, postcards and photo albums. Since then you can find recipe books, telephone registers in various sizes, a wider choice of diaries and praxinoscopes in its growing repertoire. Due to the fine quality cow leather and the watermarked paper, the range of Bomo Art products has become much more exclusive.
The name, Bomo Art Budapest indicates not only the shop but some of Budapest’s touristic sights and most beautiful buildings appear on its stationery as well. You can discover the Opera House or the Gresham Palace for example, but there are some designs showing the map of the most beautiful parts of Budapest as it was at the end of the 19th century. The motives featuring old posters, postcards, musical notes or famous Hungarian artists recall the halcyon days of the turn of the century.
Károly Boldizsár has been in love with paper since he was a child. On visiting a printing house he was touched by the peculiar scent of labels and scraps of paper. After a series of events he ended up in the printing business as a professional. His heart still starts to beat faster whenever a freshly printed sheet of Bomo Art wrapping paper rolls off the machine. He luckily meet Éva Holllósi in 2000, who – based on Károly imaginative ideas – puts the motives down the on paper and revive them.
Éva has been graduated in 2001 at Hungarian University of Fine Arts as Graphic Designer. She was always charmed by nostalgic mood going back to the turn of the century and the old illustrations, the same which defined the taste of Bomo Art. The originals of cards and wrapping papers were made by watercolour techniques and with watercolour pencil. The conscientious vocation and devotion in the common work let create the unified nature of Bomo Art for many years.
