Printmaking Tales, is the new editorial project published by Opificio della Rosa for Fabriano dedicated to printmaking, designed to explore the history of an ancient and fascinating language that has been a constant presence for generations of artists.
A volume, produced in two languages, Italian and English, which stems from the desire to stimulate curiosity and interest in the world of printmaking and which is aimed not only at an audience of specialists but also at all those who have never had the opportunity to experience the alchemy that arises from the meeting of ink with paper through different printing methods.
Looking at the prospects of contemporary graphics and thinking of the new languages that are being developed, I would love these Printmaking Tales to open a door from which to observe the journey of art and craftsmanship, begun many centuries ago, that we call printmaking.
