Intima Press is pleased to announce a new livres d’artiste based upon Hieronymus Bosch’s three-panel painting (1450-1516), which continues to intrigue and delight. The book features eleven unique multi-colored viscosity etchings, with inks applied in a painterly manner from open bite copper plates, a process more in tune with William Blake’s poetic illustrations, than with traditional etching, and hand painted with delicate and explosive lines breaking out of the rectangular frame. The intaglio prints are on folios of cotton rag papers of white (Section I), tan (Section II), and gray (Section III), the three sections coinciding with the panels of the painting from left to middle to right. Three newly written poems by Amy Lemmon, Steven Gentile, and Rich Turnbull are letterpress printed and announce each section, along with uniquely designed Roman numerals. The text is letterpress printed on vintage papers from JB Green paper mill, England. Binding by Celine Lombardi: concertina sewn spine with Bugra end papers, quarter-bound pink Buffalo skin with leather onlays, full leather slipcase. Artwork, etchings, designs & printing by artist Mindy Belloff.
