Period Paper is thrilled to offer a collection of steel engraved portraits that provides a fascinating look at the English nobility of the 17th century. During this turbulent time, the British Isles were torn apart by two sets of divided factions, parliament versus the monarchy and the Catholics against the Anglicans and members of the Puritan movement. Each portrait, featured here in incredible detail, belongs to an individual whose religion, decisions, and political standing helped to shape the England we know and love today.
