BEAUTIFUL HAND-PRINTS BY VALERIA BRANCAFORTE

Valeria Brancaforte is a talented Italian artist who lives and works in Barcelona. Valeria uses the technique of relief printmaking: no digital prints, no photocopying, just hand carving and hand pulled printing. In her short video (http://vimeo.com/14333059), you can view the carving process. Successively, the surfaces are inked and printed onto hand paper, either through a press-printing or a hand-printing process or with a Baren (Japanese special tool) often on Japanese paper or fabric for the creation of unique pieces. 
Then Valeria binds the images in a book or leave them as "broadsides". 
Many works of Valeria have received international awards and belong to private and public collections.
In addition to these pictures into the post, i recommend this short video that tells her own beautiful project, with a  spectacular lettering design: illustrate the Sonnet XIV by William Shakespeare (http://vimeo.com/49283390).
