Flowers and Hearts...

Repeating designs like this are based on antique French domino papers, or "papiers dominotés", which were used to cover the outside of books before binding. This one in particular was found as book endpapers and wallpapers from the 1870s. We originally created a hand-carved version (pictured), including the tiny dot texture, or "picotage". This process wasn't sustainable for an entire print, as the picotage was made by nailing tiny pieces of brass into the block, so for this larger size, we got a plate made out of magnesium for printing.

Beautiful Print

I received this print as a gift last Christmas. I’m a long time follower of the Press, but I hadn’t owned a print yet. What really surprised me about the print in real life was how gorgeous the paper texture is. The paper has such a lovely texture, which really makes the ink printing come alive. You have to see it in real life to appreciate what it adds
