The first manned balloon flight ever in 1783 outside Paris. The blue-yellow balloon was a hot air balloon of 850 kilos and built entirely of paper. Initially, it has been thought that two convicted criminals would be allowed to act as passengers. Instead, it was two French aristocrats who later came to be knighted for their efforts. On the balloon you see the French coat of arms in the shape of a lily in blue and gold.

The paper is matte and has a warm tone that gives the image a fantastic depth. Thanks to the unbeatable quality of the paper, you can count on a durability of up to 60 years if you expose it sparingly to sunlight and other loads.
