Is there anything more amazing than one of these so called water bears. These little creatures just rule the world. Undeniably. They are just amazing.
Hand pulled on cotton rag paper. Each print is created via the intaglio printmaking process. First, the lines of the image on a plate, then inking the plate, wiping the plate, positioning the plate on the press and laying a wet piece of cotton printmaking paper on top of the plate. The press is then engaged, the big wheel turned and a simply astounding quantity of pressure pushes the wet paper into the lines on the plate where the ink still resides and the print is created. Magic, since 1430.
